Canada and the EU are among the world’s largest trading economies and the growth of trade between these two geographic areas is particularly relevant for the ICT sector. The companies operating in these sectors are among the fastest growing, since the use of ICT products and services is spreading in various sectors.
The opportunities for growth and partnerships for these sectors have significantly increased with the introduction of CETA.
The ICT sectors
There are several points of the agreement that have direct repercussions on the sector: from fair and equal access to public telecommunications, to guaranteeing competition up to cooperation on issues relating to electronic commerce.
The removal of tariffs is also of great help to telecommunication service providers.
Finally, thanks to CETA there is a strengthening of copyright protection: Canadian regulations are in fact aligned with EU ones for the protection of new technologies and the management of digital rights.
