Foreign Policy Talk with the Embassy of Canada to Germany
Canada has elected – the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gets a second term. Just a few weeks prior to the election on September 6, 2019 IFAIR members together with representatives of the Young Transatlantic Initiative met with Geoff Gartshore, Counsellor for Political Affairs and Jean Ducharme, Counsellor for Cultural Diplomacy at the Embassy of Canada to Germany for a Foreign Policy Talk to discuss the current challenges of Canadian politics, the US-Canada relations and the cornerstones of the bilateral relations between Canada and Germany.
The topics discussed in depth included migration and integration policy, the use of renewable energies and the energy transition, the CETA trade agreement and its perception in Germany and Canada, as well as the role of women in politics.
We would like to thank Mr. Gartshore and Mr. Ducharme for the interesting and inspiring exchange and look forward to future cooperation with the Canadian Embassy in Berlin.
