The EU and Canada reached a political agreement on the key elements of a trade agreement on 18th October. The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada will generate substantial new trade in goods and services as well as additional opportunities for investment. It will be the first free trade agreement between the European Union and a G8 country.

On the basis of this political breakthrough, the negotiators will now be able to continue the process and settle all the remaining technical issues. Subsequently, the agreement will need to be approved by Council and Parliament.

The purpose of this meeting is to present and discuss the political agreement reached between the EU and Canada.
