Webinar – G7 Success Stories under EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement
Dec 4 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

REGISTER TO ATTEND THE WEBINAR

The WE EMPOWER Team will host a webinar to highlight success stories and best practices for women in business and women-owned business under CETA.

The European Union (EU) – Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is a progressive trade agreement that upholds and promotes shared values of the European Union and Canada. This landmark agreement was signed on October 30, 2016 and entered into force provisionally on September 21, 2017.

CETA was designed to help create jobs, strengthen economic relations and boost trade between Canada and Europe. CETA is a progressive free trade agreement which covers virtually all sectors and aspects of Canada-EU trade in order to eliminate or reduce 98% of tariffs.[1)

From October 2017 to July 2018 two-way goods and services trade between Canada and the European Union totalled $110.6 billion, a 6.1% increase over the equivalent pre-CETA period.

  • Goods trade totalled $79.4 billion and increased 6.3%
  • Services trade totalled $31.2 billion and increased 5.4%[2]

What are the implications of CETA for women in business? How can women benefit from CETA?

Join us for an interactive discussion as we learn about success stories and opportunities to strengthen women’s economic empowerment under CETA.

OBJECTIVES

Showcase best practices and lessons learned from private sector in Canada and G7 counterparts.
