Next CETA Event, March 25 | Examining the Canada – EU Economic Partnership.

This second installment of the CETA Series, will feature senior business and government leaders from Canada and the EU to examine the Canada-EU economic relationship from an industrial (or macroeconomic) perspective, focusing on how Canada-EU can further strengthen their collaboration to build more resilient supply chains in key sectors such as electric vehicles and batteries, critical raw materials, energy and the digital economy.

It will be on March 25, at 4:00 p.m. (CET) and can be attended in person (Avenue des Arts 57, 1000 Brussels) or virtually.

Canada and the European Union share a robust economic and political relationship.  At the heart of this steadily deepening partnership is the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), a ground-breaking accord that came into provisional application in September 2017.  

CETA has significantly enhanced bilateral trade by reducing or eliminating barriers,  promoting regulatory cooperation and alignment where possible, and facilitating government procurement opportunities for Canadian and European businesses.  Despite these benefits, there have been some challenges in fully realizing the potential of the Canada-EU economic and trade relationship. These include differences in regulations and other non-tariff barriers and issues that can impact the smooth flow of trade and investment.
