What breaking down barriers means for consumers, workers and SMEs

Thanks to CETA more than 140 EU regional products such as Champagne, Manchego cheese and Polska Wodka are protected in Canada from cheap imitations through geographical indications - a system that recognises craftsmanship at the origin. Worker mobility also improves as CETA enforces mutual recognition of professional skills, addressing a key concern among many Europeans.  

Small businesses get a boost with one set of product testing requirements, avoiding lengthy customs procedures and costly legal fees. They also get help from Member States to promote exports and keep Europe as a magnet for investment.
