EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT VOTED IN FAVOUR OF CETA – 15 FEBRUARY

Brussels Daily

The European Parliament voted in favour of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the EU and Canada (CETA).

After a long debate the European Parliament voted in favour of CETA – 408 voted yes, 254 no.

“By adopting CETA, we chose openness and growth and high standards over protectionism and stagnation. Canada is a country with whom we share common values and an ally we can rely on. Together we can build bridges, instead of a wall, for the prosperity of our citizens. CETA will be a lighthouse for future trade deals all over the world”, Parliament’s rapporteur for the CETA agreement Artis Pabriks (EPP, LV) said after the vote. Read EP statement here
