In focus

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

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

CETA entered into force provisionally on 21 September 2017, meaning 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.
