Canada presented its Indo-Pacific strategy

Ottawa: After a long wait, Canada presented its Indo-Pacific strategy.

The $2.6 billion Indo-Pacific strategy includes measures to increase Canada’s military presence and cyber security in the Indo-Pacific region, and to tighten foreign investment rules to protect intellectual property.

The Indo-Pacific strategy focuses on China, the world’s second largest economy, with deepening ties with the rapidly developing forty-nation region.

Despite deep differences with China in strategy, cooperation with China in other areas including climate change, global health and nuclear proliferation has been deemed necessary under a realistic approach.
