Canada eyes trade extension

Canada is seeking to extend a trade agreement with Caribbean countries for two more years because negotiations for a new agreement have not been completed, Agence France-Presse reported. Canada is expected to go to the World Trade Organization as early as Dec. 5. The application is aimed at extending duty-free access to CARIBCAN nations, which includes Commonwealth Caribbean countries and territories. Formal talks for the agreement currently being negotiated between Canada and the 15-nation Caribbean Community started in 2009.
