Prime Minister Trudeau to hold first Bilateral meeting with President Biden
Under the Trump administration, Canada has had the rockiest relationship on file will with any US President. Trump routinely incited trade wars with Canada and caused uncertainty in the markets affecting many businesses on both sides of the border.
With the election of Joe Biden, Canada’s largest trading partner can once again renew normal working relations. Prime Minister Trudeau was one of the first world leaders to call and congratulate President Elect Biden and Vice President Elect Harris.
Saturday afternoon, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he will hold a bilateral meeting with the President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, on February 23, 2021. This will be the first bilateral meeting between Canada and President Biden’s administration. The two leaders will meet virtually.
“Canada and the United States share one of the strongest and deepest friendships between any two countries in the world. It is built on common values, strong ties between our people, and a shared geography. I look forward to my meeting with President Biden, where we will work together to end the COVID-19 pandemic and support people in both our countries.” The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
During the meeting, Prime Minister Trudeau and President Biden will advance shared priorities, and work together to end the global COVID-19 pandemic. They will discuss their shared vision for a strong economic recovery, growing the middle class and creating jobs, maintaining strong supply chains, climate change, our bilateral energy relationship, defence and security, and promoting diversity and inclusion.
