Why should Canada continue to trade with italy

Trade can not be only done with one country, it must be done with a group of different countries in order to achieve quantity and quality. Canada must continue to trade with Italy because of all the advantages like Italy's location, Italy's climate, and the needs of Canada. First of all while trading has to keep the distance in mind. This means if Canada were to choose who to trade with, Italy or southern South America, the government would surely chose Italy since it is a direct route through water; this means it is cheaper. On the other hand if Canadian government was to trade southern South America, they would have to use air passage; this means it costs more. You may be wondering why take air passage to get to southern South America? Well, when going from Canada to southern South America, you face land and water both. This way, by air is the easiest way. Secondly, since America and Canada have relevant climate, in Winter it is a better idea to trade with Italy because it has different climate. Lastly, by trading with Italy if there is a major need that America can not supply, Canada may refer to Italy. Or if Canada needs an Italian product such as Italy's cultural resources, Canada needs to trade with Italy instead of America. It is important to trade with Italy because one day in the future, it will pay off.

How will trading with Italy benefit Canadians

Trade benefits all countries who are a part of the trade, such as when Canada trades with Italy, Canada will have a huge benefit because by trading the relationship is improved of Italy and Canada, that means Canada will have more tourist, trade will help Canada income wisely, and will give Canadians a variety of goods. Firstly, when Italy and Canada trade, the relationship/economy improves which will then attract a variety of tourist. Secondly, when it comes to trade both countries are improving trade balance by exporting items to each other, when Canada will export goods to Italy not just will Canada's trade balance improve but also Canada will gain money. Lastly, by trading Canadians have a variety of goods that are from all around the world, for ex, when it comes to trade with Italy, Canadians will have Italian cultural resources besides the ones provided in Canada. Trade benefits Canada even when Canada trades with a country besides Italy, though the benefits;Canada will have a huge benefit because by trading the relationship is improved of Italy and Canada, that means Canada will have more tourist, trade will help Canada income wisely, and will give Canadians a variety of goods; stay the same


I would like the government to take consideration of my thought of continuing to trade with the 10th largest trade country, country where Shakespeare was from, country with the longest river, and the country who used lira even when the euro was invented and adopted by all countries in Europe, our amazing Italy.
