The CPTPP and Canadian Agriculture: a CAPI presentation
CAPI presented at the Farm Foundation Forum U.S. and Canadian Perspectives on Trans-Pacific Trade, on March 4, 2019 in Washington D.C. where the findings of two new studies of potential economic impacts of trade policies were discussed by Dominique van der Mensbrugghe, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Global Trade Analysis (GTAP) at Purdue University, and Don Buckingham, Ph.D., President and CEO of the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI). Farm Foundation President Constance Cullman moderated the session.
Don Buckingham’s presentation is available here, where he reported on CAPI’s analysis of the economic activity generated for Canadian agriculture as a result of Canada’s participation in the TPP11, which became effective there Dec. 30, 2018, in Canada. When fully implemented, TPP11 will include Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, Vietnam, Peru, Chile, Brunei and Malaysia. The United States was part of the original TPP but withdrew from the agreement in January 2016. The CAPI analysis is available here.
