Montreal’s port community has strongly endorsed the framework free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union (EU) announced on October 18. Canadian exporters are looking forward to gaining tariff-free access to a market of 500 million consumers under the biggest free trade deal for Canada since the free trade pact established with the United States in the late 1980s. Importers also stand to benefit from lower prices for European industrial and other products.
