Russia and Canada: Achieving potential

­Edward Fast – Minister of Intl Trade of Canada

St. Petersburg has been flooded with hundreds of first-rank businessmen and politicians these days. They came there to attend the Economic forum, one of the most important events of its kind. Among others, a delegation from Canada came, a country that has very much in common with Russia, and one of its close trade partners. Canada’s International trade minister, Ed Fast, is my guest on the show today.
