Following today’s vote by the European Parliament in favour of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), companies on both sides of the Atlantic are now one step closer to reaping the benefits that this progressive agreement offers, with provisional application of nearly 90% of the agreement expected later this spring.
The agreement will overwhelmingly benefit SMEs who can least afford the cost of administrative fees. Small businesses will save time and money by avoiding duplicative testing requirements, lengthy customs procedures and costly legal fees.
CETA creates new opportunities for Canadian and EU companies by reducing 98% of tariffs, offering access to public procurement contracts, and increasing skilled labour mobility.
