The European Parliament’s vote in favour of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is a positive signal for Europe’s role in the global economy.

CETA is an important agreement that will deepen trade and investment ties between the EU and Canada, creating jobs and providing growth and opportunity for European businesses and citizens. The agreement can also serve as the benchmark for modern, high-standard and equitable trade agreements that benefit all parts of society.

Susan Danger, CEO, AmCham EU, said: ‘At a time of rising protectionism, the EU must seize the opportunity to shape globalisation to its values and interests. An ambitious and sustainable EU trade policy can help achieve this and deliver real benefits for its citizens and businesses.’
