Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement  (CETA)

Negotiations between the European Union and Canada on a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement began following the EU-Canada Summit of May 2009 and concluded in Ottawa on September 26, 2014. CETA constitutes one of the most ambitious economic and trade agreements in the world and estimates are that it will account for an increase of 22.9% in trade, or 38 billion CAD, and for a European GDP growth of 2.9 billion Euro per year.

In addition to the almost complete liberalization of tariff lines, CETA will provide benefits such as the opening of public tenders to European companies, the protection of geographical indications, denominations of origin, trademarks and patents, the facilitation of the movement of intra-corporate employees, and privileged treatment for investments.

The text is currently under legal review by the European Commission and the Government of Canada and, following its translation into the official languages of the Union, it will be submitted to the European Council and the European Parliament for approval. The Agreement is expected to take effect in early 2017. For additional information:
