In a piece published in the February 13, 2012 edition of La Presse, Yvan Loubier, Senior Consultant and Economist from NATIONAL’s Quebec City office, explains that the Canada-EU negotiations to reach a free trade transatlantic agreement are in their final sprint. At the pace at which things have been moving, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), which would eliminate most tariffs between Canada and the EU while reaching “behind the border” to change non-trade related government policies affecting business profits, could well be part of our lives before the end of summer.

Even if the EU is currently going through significantly tough times, the determination its members have been showing suggests a brighter future and interesting opportunities in terms of developing economic and trade partnerships.
