Canada prioritises trade with Asia


Canada is looking to join the Trans Pacific Partnership, and has already received support from some members of the free trade group.

Trade Minister Ed Fast told the BBC at the Singapore Air Show that the Canadian government had realised it has to diversify its trade relationships, and the Asia-Pacific region was one of his country's "top priorities".

As a resource-rich country, Mr Fast said Canada was keen to sell its energy products to the world, particularly to South East Asia and countries such as China and India.
