South Korea – Canada must look to the East for economic opportunities because its traditional trading partners, the U.S. and Europe, will be mired in slow growth for some time, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Monday as he wrapped up his visit to South Korea.

 Harper said Asia is becoming the world’s economic engine and Canada has the natural resources the region needs to fuel its economies.

 “We have every reason to believe that the markets in the United States and Europe … will probably experience continued slower growth for some time to come,” Harper said.

 “So the great opportunity is obviously in the Asia-Pacific region.”
