The European Union is Alberta’s fourth largest export destination. The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union (EU) was provisionally applied in September 2017, eliminating the majority of tariffs, improving market access and promoting bilateral trade and investment. Emerging export opportunities exist in environmental technologies and service sectors, ICT (mobile communications, wireless networks, Internet of Things (IoT), eLearning), life sciences, industrial technology (instrumentation, robotics, sensors), green building and aerospace and defense.
