Trudeau, Biden to hold bilateral talks ahead of North American summit: ambassador | CBC News

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Joe Biden are set to hold a bilateral meeting just before the start of a meeting of North American leaders in Mexico City next week.

Canada’s ambassador to the U.S. told CBC News on Friday she expects the two leaders to discuss what they’d like to see from the trilateral meetings to be held shortly afterward.

Kirsten Hillman said the two are also likely to go over a long list of bilateral issues, including supply chain concerns and economic co-operation, as well as foreign policy issues like the war in Ukraine, Canada’s recently released Indo-Pacific strategy and the Arctic.

“The prime minister is very focused on our joint economy and strengthening supply chains. We’ve had a record growth in intra-North American trade this past year, and so he’s going to want to make sure that the discussion centres around how to not only recognize that but continue that trend,” Hillman said in an interview with CBC Radio’s The House that is airing Saturday.

North American leaders are set to meet in the Mexican capital starting on Tuesday for discussions covering issues like climate change and supply chain issues. It’s the first meeting of the three leaders in person since 2021.

Reuters reported Thursday that Trudeau is also expected to meet with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador next Wednesday.

The prime minister’s office did not immediately reply to a request for confirmation of the U.S.-Canada bilateral meeting from CBC News.
