CETA: A New Framework For International Trade or The Last of Its Kind?
Mar 23, 2017, 6:30pm-9pm
The Comprehensive Economic & Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada was signed in October 2016 and on Jan. 24, 2017, the deal moved closer to reality after the European Parliament’s Trade Committee approved it. On Feb. 15, the European Parliament adopted the trade deal, which will lead to the provisional application of the agreement as early as April 2017. The agreement is seen as a test of the EU and Canada’s ability to forge future trade accords and as a counterweight to anticipated protectionism under the new U.S. administration.
CETA is more than a free trade agreement between the EU and Canada; it is about shaping the political, economic, social and cultural values that our countries share, and it is also about deepening transatlantic partnership.
Speakers from the EU and Canada will discuss some of these issues and will touch on the following:
- the political impact of CETA and the future of the EU/Canada partnership;
- engaging with the world through free trade agreements;
- boosting the economies of EU and Canada; and
- challenges to CETA moving forward.
