    Canada and International Trade: NAFTA and the TPP: Challenges and Opportunities Ahead

    Donald Campbell is the former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Prime Minister's Personal Representive for G8 Summits (1997-2000), and Deputy Minister of International Trade (1989 - 1993) in the department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (now Global Affairs Canada).

    He will be providing his insights from the summit on the Asia Pacific Economic-Cooperation (APEC) 2017 meetings in Vietnam, exploring where the Trade Pacific Partnership (TPP) stands now that the U.S. has pulled out.
