OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is giving the keynote address at a national meeting of U.S. governors next week as part of Canada’s pro-trade charm offensive.
While Trudeau is currently attending the G20 in Hamburg, Germany along with U.S. President Donald Trump, Canadian officials — including premiers — have included U.S. governors and state and municipal politicians in their lobbying efforts ahead of NAFTA talks.
The summer meeting of the National Governors Association will be held July 13-15 in Providence, Rhode Island. Trudeau’s keynote is scheduled for Friday, July 14.
