Global Affairs Canada

The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development, today issued the following statement on Germany’s advancement of its ratification of the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA):

“Canada and European Union have a strong trade and investment relationship rooted in our dynamic supply chains and deepened by our people-to-people ties. On the occasion of CETA’s fifth anniversary, Canada welcomes Germany’s major step forward in its CETA ratification process.

CETA’s benefits to Germany and Canada are clear. Canada-Germany trade has increased more than 16% from pre-CETA levels, reaching $25.5 billion last year. Our government will continue to work with the European Union toward the full implementation of CETA.”
