Canada - EU a "Free Trade Deal"?

November 2nd, 2012 - "The EU agreement is probably the most ambitious and advanced bilateral initiative currently under negotiation that also has the potential to provide a template for more bilateral agreements that could fill, at least partially, the void on the global level." says Dr. Kurt Huebner in the newest Policy Brief "Canada - Eu Trade deal" of "Embassy" . Furthermore Dr. Huebner explains why the "free trade deal" can be a chance for Canada with its "strong components of liberalization in the economic relations between the EU and Canada by minimizing tariffs, quotas, and other restrictions to negligible levels."

Contact Dr. Kurt Huebner to get more information. Dr. Kurt Huebner is Jean Monnet Chair at the University of British Columbia and expert on European integration issues. He is available for comments. Kurt Huebner is part of a cross-Canada network of experts working on European policy issues, the Strategic Knowledge Cluster Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue.
