APAS President hoping Trudeau can settle trade dispute with India
 
The president of APAS is hoping for some help from the government, as they look for a thorny trade dispute with a major foreign partner to end.
 
India has imposed a tariff of 40%-50% on exports of Canadian pulse crops, threatening a business valued at over a billion dollars.
 
APAS president Todd Lewis welcomes a move by the Prime Minister to visit India for trade talks.
 
“I think anytime we talk to our major trade partners, it’s important,” he said. “Certainly, the fumigation issue, I think we have a good chance to make some improvements there. I think India is an important trade partner and it’s important to maintain good relations with them.”
