Premiers look forward to the conclusion of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) negotiations, acknowledging concerns with issues that impact their areas of jurisdiction. Provinces and territories expect to continue to be involved in international negotiations as the CETA negotiations set a new positive standard. Like the CETA model, Premiers look forward to being actively involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations and others.
To ensure future prosperity, meaningful collaboration between all governments on matters related to the economy is essential. In these times of global economic uncertainty, Premiers believe that strong provincial-territorial engagement in decisions that impact the economy is required now more than ever.
Recognizing that provincial and territorial economies are driving the national economy, Premiers determined that the focus of their next meeting will be on how training and educational institutions best equip our citizens to participate in a fast changing global economy.
