European Union-Canada CETA deal after all, much still unclear


CETA, Canadian cartoon

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

The CETA trade agreement between the European Union and Canada has been saved. The Walloon [government], which stopped CETA lately, has agreed. It is not known what they have gotten in return for that.

The Walloon Prime Minister Paul Magnette said in response that it had been worth to wait until agreeing with CETA. …

Belgian Prime Minister Michel said … that adjustments had been made, without going into detail.

Correspondent Arjan Noorlander says probably protection for workers against large companies has been increased. That was one of the demands of Magnette.
