Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will visit Canada on April 27-28.

In a statement released on Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that he will discuss with his counterpart the upcoming G20 Summit in Osaka and ways to strengthen the bilateral relationship between Japan and Canada.

Prime Ministers Abe and Trudeau will also discuss the Global and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPP) and the promotion of democracy and the rule of law around the world.

The two leaders will hold a bilateral meeting to be followed by a joint press briefing.

The most recent meeting of the two Heads of Government was held at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum Leaders’ Meeting in Papua New Guinea last November.

Japan is Canada’s fourth largest partner in bilateral merchandise trade.
