EU-Canada deal will not compromise production standards - Commission

17th Feb 2017 / By Alistair Driver

The European Commission has insisted the new EU-Canada global trade deal will not compromise the EU’s standards of production or allow in lower standard imports.

cetaThe European Parliament this week voted in favour of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the EU and Canada (CETA) which could now come into force as early as this spring.

The deal removes almost 99% of tariffs currently affecting trade between the two countries, in most cases as soon as the deal comes into effect.
