Canada, EU wrap up free trade negotiations

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper speaks in Ottawa, Canada on June 9, 2014Canada and the European Union have settled on the final text of a landmark free trade deal, which is expected to come into force mid-2016, Canadian officials said Tuesday. The 1,500 page document — which will eliminate 98 percent of tariffs on goods and services, increase cross-Atlantic worker mobility and harmonize professional qualifications — must still be translated into 23 languages and be reviewed by lawyers, trade officials in Ottawa said. More details of the deal are expected to be revealed in September when Ottawa will host a Canada-EU summit to mark the official end of negotiations that started in 2009.
