Thanks to the support of the EU delegation in Ottawa, EUCCAN has been very active since the beginning of the year. 2020 also marks our organization’s 25th anniversary. In this light, we are organizing a number of activities between September and December 2020.

Panel discussion: CETA – Three years after, working together for economic recovery
CETA is a trade agreement between the EU and Canada. It reduces tariffs and makes it easier to export goods and services, benefiting people and businesses in both the EU and Canada. It also offers numerous opportunities such as government procurement.
To review the implementation of the agreement which entered into force three years ago, EUCCAN will moderate a panel discussion. The opening remarks will be given by Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade. Christian Burgsmueller, the Chargé d’affaires of the EU delegation to Canada and Christopher Cooter, Chargé d’affaires of the Mission of Canada to the EU will then give updates on the agreement. They will also present how CETA can be a great and viable opportunity for companies from Canada and the EU in the present and post COVID economic recovery context. The discussion will conclude with a short presentation by Invest in Canada targeted at European companies.
Join EUCCAN on Tuesday September 22nd 2020 at 10am EST, 4pm CET.
