This note provides details about CETA, the Comprehensive Trade and Economic Partnership. This is a free trade agreement between the EU and Canada.
CETA is the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement which is a trade deal between the EU and Canada. It has generally received less attention that TTIP – the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the EU and US, although there are a number of similarities between the two. The CETA process is more advanced - the agreement was finalised in September 2014 while the TTIP negotiations are still ongoing. The decision over whether to ratify CETA will therefore be made before the decision on TTIP. While the exact timing is not yet known, it is possible that CETA could come before the European Parliament for ratification in 2016.
