Reimagining The Way We Trade: Putting CETA to Work for Canadian Business
Sep 16, 2020
In 2017, CETA, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, came into force. Designed to expand trade between the European Union and Canada, it has created opportunities for businesses in both countries. But European companies seem to be doing much better than Canadian at leveraging the benefits created by CETA. Why aren’t Canadian companies seeing the same success? How can Canadian businesses start making this trade agreement work for them?
An expert panel will unpack these questions and examine the barriers preventing Canadian small and medium enterprises from leveraging the power of free-trade agreements. They will also take questions from the audience to better address how Canadian businesses can start making CETA work for them.
When: Wednesday, September 16 @ 9:00 a.m.
