Imposition of tariffs by the United States
Aluminium is at the heart of international trade and reflects today the many challenges faced by the major regions of the planet. Canada, as the third largest producer of aluminium, after China, Russia and the Middle-East and is beset by trade disputes between the big blocks that are China, the United States and Europe, despite a trade agreement with our neighbors to the South, which is in fact questioned by them.
Canada also has difficulties seizing the opportunities offered by the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement with the European Union in the face of market volatility, as is the case in the aluminium sector, not to mention the future entry into force of the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.
As a result, the AAC is following with interest all developments in international trade to ensure that the interests of the Canadian aluminium industry are represented where appropriate.
