Canada Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement (TPP)
October 6, 2015
St. John’s, NL – Martin Sullivan, President and CEO of Ocean Choice International, said the company is extremely pleased with the announcement of the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) Trade Agreement. This agreement will have an extremely positive impact on the seafood industry and will provide Canadian fishing companies a level playing field when it comes to developing Asian-Pacific markets.
We commend the efforts of the Government and Prime Minister Harper and Minister Fast in getting this deal done. The elimination of the high tariffs on our seafood imports into these growing markets provides us with the opportunity to enhance our market presence globally. Mr. Sullivan noted that Asia is one our main export markets and this agreement will provide the opportunity for OCI’s premium seafood to become competitive in that market.More about Ocean Choice International
