Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau speaks with European Union’s Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Janusz Wojciechowski
“Maintaining strong trade with our European friends and allies will be essential for our economic restart. During my discussion with Commissioner Wojciechowski, I built upon the strength of that long-standing relationship and promoted the high-quality of Canadian agri-food products.”
- The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
Since CETA provisionally went into effect in September 2017, exports of agriculture and agri-food to the EU have increased nearly 12% between 2016 (the last full year prior to CETA) and 2019. Some of the commodities to benefit the most from CETA tariff reductions are: cranberries (exports up 130%); fruits and nuts (up 84%); dog and cat food (up 22%); and maple sugar and syrup (up 15%).
Other commodities that saw exports increase in that time period are: canola seed (up 97%); kidney and white pea beans (up 30%); soya beans (up 13%); and corn (up 11%).
