CETA agreement between the EU and Canada
The EU is in the process of completing the EU-Canada Free Trade Agreement (CETA) and final approval is currently expected in the first quarter of 2017.
However, given the outcome of the referendum in the UK, progress could slow.
Under CETA, pork has been classified as a sensitive product. For Canadian pork exported to the EU, while a zero duty will apply, this will be limited by tariff rate quotas (TRQs). So far, Canada has had no success in penetrating the EU pig meat market but could this change as a result of CETA?
