    I think that the TPP is a very important component of the [U.S. rebalance toward Asia]. It's not just about military redeployment, it's also about constructing a regional economic, trans-regional economic architecture.

    Business in Africa is a long-term proposition and it is a very good investment for companies to invest in training local staff. It is a win-win situation.

    The places that have high inequality almost by definition have a small middle class. There’s this crater in the middle; they’re trying to keep their cities affordable and livable for the middle class.

    A lot of [Keystone pipeline] development is going ahead anyway in Canada, and there have been a few recent announcements towards the end of last year about some fairly substantial enlargement in that part of Canada.

    I think this [TPP] ministerial is critical because you’re picking up the pieces of what happened last year. People are using this ministerial to get the sense of whether TPP has the momentum to move forward.
