Canada, Spain underscore commitment to free trade
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently met visiting Spanish counterpart Pedro Sánchez and both sides approved the Canada-Spain Cooperation Agenda, an agreement to collaborate more closely to create economic growth, combat climate change, advance gender equality. As part of the agreement, both underlined their commitment to free trade.

The two leaders also approved the Declaration in Favour of Gender Equality, which outlines actions to tackle persistent gender inequalities and meet the goals outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, according to a press release from the Canadian prime minister’s office.

Both countries will redouble their efforts to end gender-based violence, take action to reduce gender wage gaps, and encourage the participation of women and girls in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Gender equality will also guide both countries’ foreign policy work and engagement in international institutions such as the United Nations, the press release said. (DS)
