The ratification of the CETA agreement is imminent, with far-reaching economic and social implications. France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls is currently in Canada for meetings with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
CETA is the object of protests in both Canada and the EU. It was also the object of a legal procedure in Germany.

NAFTA-EU integration would modify the political architecture of the European Union.
