The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) has swiftly become a driving force when it comes to international trade and business relationships. The ICCO has continued in its endeavors to promote discussion and education regarding CETA, having already held two seminars this year in Milan and Varese. Most recently ICCO has partnered with the Canadian Embassy in Italy, the Quebec trade agency and other Chambers of Commerce on September 15th in Bari during the Fiera del Levante, presenting opportunities for business in Canada, with a particular emphasis on Ontario.
ICCO will co-host its latest seminar installment on CETA on Thursday September 28th in collaboration with Stikeman Elliott LLP, The City of Toronto and the Consulate General of Italy in Toronto. The seminar promises to be an engaging breakfast discussion about CETA and the new opportunities for building a trade route between Canada, Italy and the EU.
“CETA will eliminate over 90% of tariffs and trade barriers. It will facilitate free circulation of skilled labor and it will allow companies to bid for public tenders both in Canada and in Europe,” explains ICCO’s Executive Director Corrado Paina. “Our goal is to assist SMEs to succeed in this new business environment and take advantage of new investment and trade opportunities.”
