Nunavut has increasingly looked to the Asia Pacific region to enhance its global reputation. As part of its 2013-2016 Business Plan, the government has committed itself to continue participation in territorial debriefs on both the Trans-Pacific partnership and the Canada-India Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. Nunavut’s Economic Development Strategy: Building a Foundation for the Future, a joint report by the territorial government, Inuit organizations, and non-governmental and private sector groups, proposed the creation of an Export Development Agency to better promote Nunavut products globally.
The territory’s 2013 Economic Outlook does not target any specific world region, but it identifies opportunities for growth in resource development, fishing, tourism, Arctic research, and marine transportation.
