Across the EU and Canada, the tech sector has been taking off, with emerging hubs across the map. Given the innovation and encouragement brought on by the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement’s (CETA) eliminated tariffs, as well as greater cooperation on standards and certification, smoother labour mobility, and increased procurement access opportunities, there is considerable opportunity for cooperation and partnerships between European and Canadian tech SMEs and ventures.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for more sustainable practices, agri-tech, clean-tech, and med-tech are all crucial sectors to invest in.
EU-Canada trade, investment, and partnership opportunities and challenges in these sectors will be the focus of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Canada’s (EUCCAN) Business Day webinar on 27 May at 15:00 CET.
EUCCAN will welcome public and private officials from both Europe and Canada for panel discussions dedicated to each sector. This event will also give European and Canadian companies in the three sectors the chance to network, and provide the opportunity for European businesses to meet Canadian federal and provincial officials, as well as for the Canadian companies to meet representatives of EU countries, in order to support their market expansion.
Registration will follow soon. Find out more about the webinar here.
