Port To Benefit From Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement

Nearly a decade of negotiations--sometimes with talks coming to a standstill--and a number of tough decisions were behind Canada's recently announced free trade agreement with South Korea.

The agreement will have implications for various industries throughout this country--however, one place where the benefits will be acutely felt is Port Saint John.

Port President and CEO Jim Quinn called it a historic moment. Some Canadian products in demand in Korean markets include blueberries, cranberries, and seafood.

This is Canada's first free trade agreement with an Asian country.
