British producers of machinery, electrical equipment, automobiles, and pharmaceuticals will see import tariffs of up to 9.5% on their trade with Canada slashed after the European Parliament supported the EU-Canada free trade deal (known as CETA).
In addition to eliminating 99% of duties on imported British goods the agreement will ease the export of services and the access of British professionals to work in Canada.
Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera
The title of this exhibition comes from a passage of William Shakespeare’s Anthony and Cleopatra (act 1, scene 5): “My salad days, when I was green in judgment, cold in blood….” The idiomatic expression refers to youth as a time of inexperience accompanied by enthusiasm and idealism, and in this exhibition it recalls by extension the archetype of Senex and Puer, as developed by the psychologist James Hillman.
Slade School of Fine Art
This exhibition from the Slade incorporates students from across the undergraduate, graduate and PhD programmes. At a time of great change and uncertainty in Europe and across the world, where the order and structure of ways of life are significantly changing, what’s at stake during these great shifts? Through diverse means and media, through current affairs, narrative, poetry, politics and abstraction, the work in On the Verge considers these tensions; what is there to fear and what is there to be hopeful for?
