Tim Bennett Comments on CETA

On February 8, 2017, Tim Bennett, TABC Director-General/CEO, was quoted in Bloomberg BNA on the progress of the EU-Canada trade relationship. Bennett stated, “During this period of the TTIP “freeze” or “pause”, the EU is actively negotiating a relatively large number of other FTAs around the world which should benefit our European members but would put our U.S. members at a clear competitive disadvantage in the largest market in the world, which is the European Union. This is a key reason why TABC hopes that the TTIP negotiations can be revived once the Trump Administration is fully staffed.”
