LuxExpo, 10, circuit de la Foire internationale L-1347 Luxembourg (Kirchberg)


The Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce together with CanCham BeLux has the pleasure of inviting you to the “EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA): What does it mean for your business?  Why is CETA "historic" and "unique"? workshop which will take place on June 17th from 13h30 to 14h15 at the exhibition center LuxExpo, 10, circuit de la Foire internationale L-1347 Luxembourg (Kirchberg).

The workshop is organized in the framework of the Greater Region Business Days trade fair and the celebration of 70 years of diplomatic relations between Canada and the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will further open the Canadian market for Luxembourg companies. The agreement will come into effect in 2016, at which time about 99% of the tariffs between the two economies will be eliminated and sizeable new market access opportunities in services and investment will have been created. Once implemented, the agreement is expected to increase two-way bilateral trade in goods and services by 23% or €26 billion, fostering growth and employment on both sides of the Atlantic.
