Joint statement from Randy Hoback, Chair of the Standing Committee on International Trade of the House of Commons and of Dr. Peter Ramsauer, Chair of the Committee on Economic Affairs and Energy of the Bundestag
OTTAWA – Today, the German Committee on Economic Affairs and Energy and the Canadian Committee on International Trade, held a bilateral meeting of legislators to discuss the strong and growing economic relationship between Canada and Germany. Elected officials from both countries highlighted the tremendous opportunities for deepening trade and investment ties, particularly through the Canada-EU Trade Agreement (CETA).
The committees recognized that CETA is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art agreement that will spur investment and job creation on both sides of the Atlantic. The benefits for German and Canadian businesses, workers and consumers are clear. We look forward to seeing CETA brought into force as soon as possible.
