Joris Larik interviewed by CBC News about CETA
On 29 January 2019, CBC News, Canada’s largest news broadcaster, interviewed Dr. Joris Larik about the status of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada.
Earlier that day, the Advocate General at the Court of Justice of the EU had delivered an opinion, in which he concluded that the agreement, in particular its chapter on investment protection, was compatible with EU law. This notwithstanding, Dr. Joris Larik pointed out the many remaining obstacles that need to be tackled before the agreement can enter into force.
