CETA - Introduction (Fr)
CETA - Introduction.
On October 18, 2013, Canada and the European Union (EU) signed the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
For the moment, this is an agreement in principle that has not yet been ratified or implemented by the two parties (federal and provincial governments, as well as the 28 EU countries) to return in force.
This target should be reached by 2015.
However, most of the major problems, set out below, have been resolved.
CETA has an extremely broad scope and applies to almost all sectors of trade between the EU and Canada, namely:
1. Elimination of agricultural tariffs
2. Elimination of industrial tariffs
3. Services and labor mobility
5. Public procurement
6. Intellectual property
7. Sustainable development, environment and work
8. Dispute resolution and monitoring
