Due to Canada's large geography, Canadians are known to supply the world with many natural resources. These products made in Japan or Canada have a reputation of being the highest of quality in the world.
After all that we have learned from Japanese and Canadian business relations we conclude that the partnership of these two countries are beneficial to both economies. Each country produces goods that are not available at home and the circulation of these products internationally not only creates wealth and jobs but also lessens cultural and political divides among nations. Japan and Canada’s trading partnership is worthwhile and prosperous, and should continue for many years to come.
