Canada experienced a substantial deficit in transportation and government services trade with Asia in 2017. Hong Kong is our top Asian partner in this category, accounting for 18% of Canada's receipts from Asia while providing 40% of Canada's imports from Asia. This is largely accounted for by transportation services. China is also prominent in this category, accounting for 20% of Canada's receipts from Asia and providing about 15% of Canada's transportation and government services imports from Asia. Canada also experienced significant negative balance with Singapore.
