The Government of Canada is seeking the views of the Canadian public and interested Canadian stakeholders on the scope of potential negotiations toward a possible FTA with ASEAN.

These consultations will seek the views of Canadians to help define Canada’s interests in a possible free trade agreement, and identify opportunities for such an agreement to create wealth, innovation and jobs for Canadians.

The focus of consultations is to determine how Canada should best proceed regarding a possible FTA with ASEAN. This would include how to best improve market access, legal certainty and transparency for Canadian business, but also to understand any other related issues and concerns that are relevant when considering a possible FTA.

The submission period for the Canada Gazette notice will last 45 days, and end on October 16, 2018.
