Webinar: Exporting Fish and Seafood Products to CPTPP Countries

The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) is a new free trade agreement between Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. The CPTPP entered into force for Canada on December 30, 2018, providing new opportunities for Canadian exporters of fish and seafood products. Upon entry into force, the CPTPP eliminated most tariffs on Canadian fish and seafood exports, with the remaining fish and seafood tariffs being phased out over periods of up to 15 years.

Agriculture and Agri-food Canada is hosting a webinar for information on how companies can benefit from the CPTPP. The webinar will feature a panel discussion with Trade Commissioners from Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada and Global Affairs Canada covering Japan, Vietnam, Mexico, and the Southeast Asia region. Participants will learn more about the benefits of the CPTPP for fish and seafood products, considerations and requirements to take advantage of the agreement, as well as opportunities and trends in the fish and seafood sectors in key CPTPP markets.

  • Chris Anderson, Counsellor and Regional Trade Commissioner to Indonesia and ASEAN (Agriculture and Agri-Food), Embassy of Canada in Indonesia

  • Jennifer Rodrigue, First Secretary and Trade Commissioner (Agri-food), Embassy of Canada in Mexico
