Trudeau, Trump talk steel and aluminum

Joseph Galimberti, president of the Canadian Steel Producers Association, said Ottawa is being urged to add staff to Global Affairs Canada and hire more inspectors for the Canada Border Services Agency.

"We are very concerned about the actions taken by China and the dumping of steel and aluminum on the global market", Trudeau said following a tour of a steel and aluminum plant. We also know they face real challenges, including concerns around global overcapacity and our integrated North American market. "This is about defending our country's primary interests and values, so that our industries and businesses can continue to drive economic growth, and create the good, middle class jobs that we need for our future prosperity". Her office said the talks are focused on pushing the ball forward on the NAFTA talks.

She is to meet US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Congressional leaders and others.

But both Mexico and Canada have rejected Trump's linkage of the levies to the ongoing NAFTA talks.

Trudeau, who is expected to travel to three other Canadian steel cities to reassure workers in the coming days, said Canada already has "significant barriers" in place to prevent low-priced steel and aluminum from being dumped there, and is prepared to work with Washington to "do even more".

However, they expect any talks about a possible permanent exemption to take place outside of the North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations. "That is because the level of integration within our two markets is deep, complex and profitable to both of our countries".

Mr. Trudeau also took Canada's case to USA cable channels on Monday with appearances on MSNBC and CNN. The steel tariff investigation was launched to see the impact of steel imports on USA national security. He was to also visit three Canadian steel cities this week to reassure workers. Marie and Regina this week.

So steel-processing centres in Canada could import metal from China or India or other countries subject to the tariff and then sell it to an auto-parts maker or an energy company that turns it into something with a different tariff code.

Trump signed the proclamation on those tariffs last week and the exemption given Canada was a last-minute victory for the Canadian government.

The prime minister is on a cross-country tour of aluminum and steel factories to demonstrate his government's support for workers in light of potential threats to those industries from the USA administration.

The Canadian government has vowed to retaliate if duties are imposed, but the prime minister did not answer directly when asked what measures it might take.
