The Canada-EU trade deal, six years later from Ag Policy Connection Ep. 2


Interested in where Canada stands with the CETA six years later ?

A new episode from the Ag Policy Connection, not to miss !



" It’s been nearly six years since Canada ratified a major trade agreement with its second largest trading partner, the European Union. While the deal has been hailed as an overall success, it has yet to live up to its potential when it comes to agricultural exports from Canada...

...On this episode of the Ag Policy Connection, we get into the nitty-gritty of the Canada-EU trade deal, formally known as the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), including the negotiation process going back to the late 2000s, the political factors at play as the deal moved ahead under both Conservative and Liberal governments, what both sides were hoping to get out of the agreement, and whether it’s lived up to those expectations. We also discuss the political environment today, and whether the momentum that resulted in Canada signing a trade deal such as CETA still exists."
