Trade Agreement

Assessment of the Signed EU-Canada Trade Agreement CETA (Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement) and the Adopted Supplementary Declarations

DGB-Position on CETA (PDF, 200 kB)

The implementation of CETA committed to designing open markets and free trade based on criteria of a fair globalisation while ensuring that workers’ rights can be maintained and developed at the national and international level could help to win the citizens’ trust and would be a sign against the revival of protectionism and nationalism. In the currently present form, however, the DGB finds that the Agreement do not sufficiently meet the requirements. Therefore, the DGB sees it as the duty of the parliamentarians to only agree to provisional application and subsequent ratification of CETA and the JII if improvements are achieved.
