On October 18, 2013, Canada and the 28-State European Union (“EU”) announced the conclusion of a new Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (“CETA”).  Set to commence in 2016, the CETA will remove 99% of tariffs between both parties, open Canada to a market of 500 million consumers and a combined GDP of $17-trillion.  The breadth and scope of the CETA are unparalleled in the history of Canadian-treaty making.

A year prior, on October 9, 2012, Canada also joined the formal negotiations of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (“TPP”), an agreement aimed at promoting free trade within the Asia-Pacific region.  Today, the TPP counts 12 participants (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam), covers 40% of the world’s economic output, and 26% of global trade in terms of GDP.  Taiwan, the Philippines, and South Korea have also recently expressed an interest in joining the TPP talks.

Join us on February 24, 2015, as experts from a variety of backgrounds provide their views and perspectives on major, cross-cutting legal and public policy issues underlying these “next-generation” free trade agreements. What are their significance, impact, and implications for Canada, trade policy, and the future of our global economy?  This event should be of interest to students, academics government advisors, NGOs, and legal practitioners.

Note: To encourage open discussion, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule. Participants are free to use the information received during the event, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speakers, nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.  Photos may be taken during this event.
