GOV CHRISTIE: NORTH AMERICAN PARTNERSHIPS OUR “FIRST THOUGHT” NOT AN AFTERTHOUGHT – Governor Christie will travel to Canada on December 4th and 5th to promote energy and business ties between New Jersey and Canada – our state’s largest trade partner. Annual trade between New Jersey and Canada totals nearly $16 billion, supports more than 243,000 jobs, and includes more than $350 million in bilateral economic activity from tourism alone. This will be the Governor’s second foreign trip of his second term and his third overall since taking office. Governor Christie traveled to Mexico in September of this year and Israel in 2012.
