Canada currently has 3 major Free Trade Agreements (NAFTA, CETA & the TPP) plus smaller ones with 14 countries, providing Canadian entrepreneurs with great international opportunities but how exactly do they work and how can we benefit from them, both from an exporter’s and an importer’s point of view?
This seminar will explain how these Trade Agreements are structured, the benefits for the trade in goods, the rules of origin, customs and documentation requirements, the benefits for services, and where to find the relevant information. This session will be of interest to companies and individuals currently involved or wanting to get involved in international trade, in particular importers and exporters of tangible goods.
