Ambassador Series - Canada

On Thursday 8 September, join us for an exclusive event with H.E. Daniel J. Costello, Ambassador of Canada to the EU. As free trade deals become the subject of increasing controversy in the EU, one of the topics the Ambassador will discuss will be the state of play of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).

YPFP members were lucky to meet with Canadian Trade Minister Freeland earlier in the year to discuss the challenges and opportunities for CETA - so join us to hear what has changed since her visit in April 2016 and what are the prospects for 28 member states ratifying the deal quickly?

Ambassador Costello will also talk about EU-Canada relations more broadly including how the two partners are confronting an increasing unstable global political and security environment. With enormous changes to the fabric of the EU, how will Trudeau's popular new government build relations with their Brussels counterparts who are increasingly focused on the EU's own internal challenges? Members will have the opportunity to address the Ambassador directly during the Q&A session. The event will then be followed by a light cocktail reception generously offered by the Mission of Canada to the EU.

Don't miss this great opportunity, sign up now! Seats are limited and the event is exclusive to our members.
