Canada Working On Its Own FTA With EU

Canadian officials are trying to iron out their own free trade deal with the European Union. E.U. negotiators are attempting to ink deals with both Japan and the United States. Canadian Cattlemen’s Vice President of International Relations John Masswohl says after seven weeks of tough discussions in Brussels, Canada and the E.U. are taking a breather.

He says however they are nearingĀ  a deal.

Masswohl says he’s not sure what the whole FTA will mean to Canada’s overall economy but says it’ll be a significant financial boon for the nation’s cattle producers.

Masswohl says while it will be a challenge believes trade barriers beign thrown up by Irish and French farmers can be overcome and an eventual FTA reached.
