Canada rises mas­sively in ap­parel imports value dur­ing Q1 ’18

Canada wit­nessed a mas­sive rise (25.52%) in its ap­parel im­port in the first quar­ter of 2018. Not just ap­par­els, Canada felt the shiv­ers of higher than usual im­port lev­els in other cat­e­gories too which fur­ther re­sulted into widened trade deficit. Dur­ing the pe­riod, the deficit was more than dou­ble what an­a­lysts had forecast ear­lier. How­ever, with CPTPP and CETA, Canada is pre­dict­ing a bet­ter year ahead as far as trade with part­ner coun­tries is con­cerned that might re­duce the gap of deficit in the fur­ther months.
