“Government-to-government” relations, underpinned by high-level Canadian representation in foreign nations, such as an embassy, significantly boost the level of Canadian exports to those countries, according to a new C. D. Howe Institute report. In the study, entitled “The Impact of Diplomatic Representation Abroad on Canada’s Exports,” author Dan Ciuriak provides new insights into where, why and how economic diplomacy works best, and shows that an embassy or equivalent has in the past added more to trade than have additional consulates or trade offices in the same destination.
