Trudeau en route to Southeast Asia for summits aimed at deeper Indo-Pacific ties

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is traveling to Southeast Asia for a series of summits aimed at deepening Canada’s influence in the Indo-Pacific.

He traveled to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital, with Trade Minister Mary Ng and Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly.

Trudeau arrived today at a summit of leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, a group of 10 nations that is negotiating a trade deal with Canada.

Trudeau, who traveled to Indonesia on Monday for the G20 summit in Bali, is pressuring the world’s largest economy to isolate Russia from its invasion of Ukraine.

The summit focused on strengthening health systems and strengthening food and energy security, which Trudeau believes Russia has undermined.

Trudeau will then spend the night in Bangkok, Thailand, to meet other APEC leaders before heading to Tunisia.
