This report identifies the regions, exports, imports, and investments that have been Canada's focus in Asia, as well as the areas that have not had much focus, and compares Canada's evolving market share in Asia with that of competing nations.

Document Highlights

Canada's exports to Asia have skyrocketed over the past decade, making it Canada's second largest trade relationship. However, exports have been concentrated in natural resources, and Canada's outward foreign direct investment growth and commercial services sales in Asia are weak.

While Canada has benefited from Asia's thirst for natural resources, the next step is to seize other trade and investment opportunities Asia has to offer—especially in a world of slowing demand for natural resources.

It also compares Canada's evolving market share in Asia with that of competing nations.
