Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in preliminary talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on a possible Canada-China 'free trade' agreement.
The Canadian Press reports, "After meeting with Trudeau, [the Chinese premier] told reporters through a translator that Canada and China will launch a feasibility study on an eventual free-trade deal. A senior Canadian official later said the two counties have ongoing technical discussions on free trade, but stressed that there are no negotiations under way at this point."
