EU Parliament Ratifies CETA

15 02 2017


After years of diplomatic hard labour, the EU parliament has voted in favour of CETA, the Canada-EU trade agreement. See here, here, and here.  I know that some people have understandable concerns about the ISDS provisions of the agreement, but I think that overall the ratification of CETA is a great move and a victory for liberal values of trade and openness in an era otherwise dominated by the likes of Putin, Trump, Le Pen, and so forth.
