The EU/Colombia Trade Agreement will take effect on 1 August 2013.
On the occasion of this event, the Audiovisual services of DG COMM have produced a video stockshot showing trading between the EU and one of three South American countries where the agreement has applied since March 2013, Peru.
Trade barriers between the EU and Colombia will be lifted as of 1 August 2013, when a comprehensive and far-reaching trade deal will enter into application. The agreement will open up markets for both EU and Colombian exporters, eventually bringing annual savings of more than 500 million euro for companies. The improved, more stable conditions for trade and investment are expected to boost trade and investment between the EU and the Andean region. The deal was signed by the EU, Colombia and Peru in June 2012 and will now be applied between all three parties.
