Trade has long been a powerful engine of growth for Canada’s economy. The comprehensive economic and trade agreement (CETA) with the European Union (EU) represents an exciting opportunity for Canadian businesses, providing easier access to a market of over 550 million consumers as well as positioning Canada as an attractive destination for foreign investment.This conference, organized by the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario and sponsored by Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, will provide an overview of the Canadian-EU business relationships in light of the CETA agreement and a forum for discussion on how to develop and grow your business in the post CETA environment. As Canada and the European Union approach the end of negotiations, Canadian companies need to position themselves to take advantage of the potential offered by this agreement.
Our distinguished panel will include:
Maurizio Cellini, First Counsellor, Head of the Economic and Trade Section European Union Delegation to Canada
Greg Kanargelidis Partner, Blakes
Jason Langrish Executive Director, Canada Europe Roundtable for Business
John Whitehead Ontario Chief Negotiator for the CETA Agreement
