BMC’s Participation in the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Trade Mission to Washington, D.C.

May 23, 2024

The Biologics Manufacturing Centre (BMC) recently participated in a trade mission organized by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C., on May 1 and May 2. This event brought together Canadian business leaders for a series of engagements with U.S. officials, business leaders, and other members of the D.C. public policy community.

The mission, organized in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), highlighted the importance of cooperation between the North American economies to preserve our mutual economic security.

Canada and the United States share one of the largest trading relationships in the world, underpinned by the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA). Together, Canada, the United States, and Mexico comprise almost a third of global GDP.

As part of the Canadian Chamber’s Canada-U.S. Engagement Plan, this trade mission was the second of four business-led missions to the U.S. in 2024. The mission focused on North American economic security in the context of the 2026 CUSMA review, upcoming federal elections in all three member countries, and growing geopolitical volatility worldwide.

The Canadian Chamber’s business delegation comprised two dozen Canadian business leaders from various sectors, including energy, tech, finance, insurance, transportation, and professional services. The delegation also included representatives from provincial partner organizations.
