CETA (EU-Canada trade deal) is the most advanced, ambitious, comprehensive and modern trade agreement ever negotiated by both the European Union and Canada. CETA will eliminate nearly all import duties, saving European exporters more than €500 million every year. It guarantees market access and creates a level playing field for businesses, advances EU agricultural interests by protecting 145 European Geographical Indications (GIs) and safeguards property rights in an international context, while respecting high environmental, consumer and labour standards. The trade deal took 7 years to negotiate and is a modern, well-balanced agreement that sets new benchmarks and standards for future trade agreements worldwide.
