Premier to Travel to Washington, D.C. to Discuss Trade and Shared Economies

Premier Stephen McNeil will travel to Washington, D.C. on Monday, July 30 to discuss the importance of free trade to the relationship between Canada and the United States.

The premier will meet with senior officials with the U.S. Department of Commerce, to discuss the United States national security investigation on automobiles and auto parts.

“This is a critical issue for Nova Scotia. Michelin and Neocon International are good Nova Scotia examples of the highly-integrated auto sector in North America,” said Premier McNeil. “I think it is important that we take the opportunity to meet with U.S. decision-makers to advocate on behalf of the industry.”

In 2017, $3.5 billion in goods were exported from Nova Scotia to the U.S. This is 65 per cent of the total international goods exported from the province.
