EU: Canadian feeder agreement could be ready in 2015

The free-trade agreement between the EU and Canada, which will enable EU carriers to pursue feeder jobs between selected Canadian ports, could come into force by 2015 or 2016, says the EU Commission.

A trade agreement between the EU and Canada could be ready by late 2015, at the earliest, says German Torsten Klimke - among others - who serves on the EU Commission's directorate for mobility and transport, to ShippingWatch.

"Concluding the agreement could take approximately one year and a half to two years on the EU side between the end of the negotiations and the adoption of the Decision by the Council. So you can expect entry into force in late 2015 or early 2016 at the earliest," he says in an email.
