March 22, 2013 – Vancouver - The Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, during a visit to Canada Place, highlights the ways Economic Action Plan 2013 will benefit workers and families in British Columbia and across Canada.

“Canada’s long-term prosperity requires us to continue to diversify our trading relationships and establish new, permanent links to large, dynamic and fast-growing economies around the world,” said Minister Fast. “As part of the most ambitious trade expansion plan our country has ever seen, we will continue to facilitate trade through the Asia-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative and by working with partners at Port Metro Vancouver.”

Port Metro Vancouver is now the most diversified port in North America, processing $75-billion worth of goods moving between more than 130 trading economies each year.
