 WTO | Trade policy review - Canada 1996
Canada's efforts towards trade liberalization at the regional and multilateral levels, complemented by a process of deregulation, commercialization and reduced government spending are helping to ease distortions in the incentive system and create a stronger basis for long-term economic expansion.
