Look to the Commonwealth for international trade agreement, pen UWindsor profs

With the future of international trade travelling a precarious path, a pair of UWindsor professors are recommending that Canada looks “to the Commonwealth" for an economic solution.

The Faculty of English's Richard Douglass-Chin and Odette School of Business' Imran Abdool co-authored an article with Kal Juman for Policy Options magazine.

The magazine is considered Canada’s “premier public policy magazine.”

In the article, Abdool and Dr. Douglass-Chin assert that Canada should consider the Commonwealth of Nations to diversify its international trade policy.

“With Canada facing difficult NAFTA negotiations, a new normal of low economic growth in developed countries and opportunity-rich emerging markets, perhaps it’s time to ‘go back to the future’ and diversify trade into the “Canton-wealth,’” the article concludes.
