With a twinkle in his eye (and a floral pattern on his socks), Canada prime minister Justin Trudeau opened the 2018 Fortune Global Forum in Toronto by making a powerful, full-throated case for his country’s economy.
“We’re the only G7 country with a free trade deal with every other G7 country,” he said.
Whatever the case, “There should be rules in the global economy,” Trudeau said.
“In three years, Canada was able to close a free trade deal with Europe…and moved forward on saving NAFTA,” making progress at a time “when trade deals aren’t in fashion anymore,” he said.
