Securing Canada's Place in Asia: Means, Institutions and Mechanisms

Authors: Paul Evans, Don Campbell, Pierre Lortie

in Research Reports   (52 pages)

Abstract:

This report assesses and makes recommendations on the role that regional institutions and bilateral mechanisms should play in a government strategy to pursue Canada’s interests and secure its place in Asia.  The report argues that success in Asia takes not just a whole-of-government, but a whole-of-country approach. The authors contend that Canada’s efforts must be large-scale, ambitious, coordinated, cross-partisan, multi-dimensional, and long-term. This task force was created by APF Canada and established as part of the National Conversation on Asia.

We can only hope that this will provide some new momentum in the development of Canada's relations with the most dynamic region in the world economy. I have written a longer review on our website.
