Description
Signed the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada that covers nearly all Canada-EU trade, including trade in livestock and livestock products. The European Parliament voted in favour of CETA on 15 February 2017. Under the agreement, the EU will receive unlimited duty-free access to the Canadian market for bovine and pig meat, while Canada will gain duty-free access for bovine meat to the European market through a tariff rate quota (TRQ) totalling almost 50 000 metric tonnes.
