In focus

CETA is a new trade agreement between the EU and Canada.

It makes it easier to export goods and services, benefitting people and businesses in both the EU and Canada.

On 21 September 2017 CETA entered into force provisionally. As such most of the agreement now applies.

National parliaments in EU countries – and in some cases regional ones too – will then need to approve CETA before it can take full effect.
