  • China wants no 'progressive' elements in any free trade deal with Canada: envoy

    China's ambassador says his country firmly rejects Canada's attempts to entrench labour standards in a free trade pact.
    Envoy Lu Shaye says Canada's so-called progressive trade agenda has no place in a free trade agreement.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was unable to persuade China's leaders to formally entrench labour, gender, environment and governance issues in the negotiating framework of free trade talks.

    Trudeau spent four days in China in December but left without a formal commitment to moving the free trade talks past the exploratory phase into formal negotiations.
