Canada's CETA Export Challenge
The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement seems to be the most ambitious agreement at the world trade organization, but it is already getting heavy support from most Canadians. Of course, every person has a different opinion about it, with some criticizing and others supporting it. Still, regardless of what is included in the final copy, CETA is bound to be a reality. It will open doors for Canadians, giving them access to 28 countries, which can be considered the world’s largest market.
Several parties have been involved in the negotiations, with each having its agendas as driven by the respective regional and political interests. It took four years for all the municipalities, provincial authorities, and the general public to reach a consensus that will aid the entire Canadian population in free exportation. The agreement aims to open a market of up to 500 million customers, which is enough to convince even the harshest government critics that CETA is one of the best deals for the region.
