Product description

Written by recognized leaders in international trade with decades of combined experience, The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the European Union and Canada: Economic Perspectives and Legal Analysis offers invaluable insight and expert commentary on the potential implications of the agreement now that it has come into force, after two years of provisional application.

Relevant Reading
This timely publication aims to help the business communities in both Canada and European Union gain a better understanding of what is new in the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), the ways in which it differs from traditional trade agreements and how it is likely to benefit the Canadian and European economies.

In particular, the authors describe how today’s firms operate in a new trade reality where global value chains and service trade are omnipresent. The book illustrates how the Agreement reflects this new reality in its comprehensive nature – compared to other recent free trade agreements – and discusses how it provides a long-awaited effectiveness in addressing so-called “behind the border” barriers.

The combination of the economic and legal analyses featured in this volume provides business leaders with the opportunity to deepen both their understanding of why the accord matters economically and how the legal measures will affect their specific businesses. Special attention is paid to the pharmaceutical, food, automotive, maritime and telecommunications industries, which have been specifically targeted by CETA. Significantly, the text also examines how CETA will play a key role in the economic recovery post-COVID-19.

Accessible Content
Ultimately, The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the European Union and Canada: Economic Perspectives and Legal Analysis provides readers with an easy-to-understand and succinct overview of the key changes CETA has introduced and will be especially useful for:

  • International trade and international business lawyers who will use it as a reference volume when advising clients about trading a product or service with a European country
  • In-house lawyers at companies that sell or trade their product or service with European nations as it provides useful insight for understanding how CETA has changed the trading landscape
  • Students in international business law, international trade and MBA programs who are looking for an accessible, comprehensive resource
  • Government employees, including those working for Foreign Affairs, Trade & Development Canada, Canadian Trade Commissioner Service and ambassadors in Canada/EU countries – as it is a valuable learning and reference tool for those providing export advice and guidance to Canadians seeking to increase their international business
  • Law libraries who want to offer patrons the resources they require
