Canada’s business leaders welcome today’s vote by the German Bundestag to ratify the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). Germany is Europe’s largest economy and Canada’s top trade partner within the European Union. German ratification is a significant step toward full ratification of the agreement

To further strengthen the Canada-EU partnership and deliver on the full promise of CETA, Canada must now do more to honour our commitment to supply European allies with resources they need to heat their homes and power their factories. This includes LNG and hydrogen, as discussed with Chancellor Scholz during his visit here in August.
