2020-11-23 16:02

 

新华社渥太华11月21日电加拿大和英国周六签署了《加拿大-英国贸易连续性协定》,该协定是脱欧后的临时贸易协定,将于2021年1月1日英国脱离欧盟时生效。


周六,加拿大总理贾斯汀·特鲁多和英国总理鲍里斯·约翰逊在一场视频直播新闻发布会上宣布了该协议。


特鲁多说:“现在我们要继续努力,在未来几年达成一项定制协议,一项全面协议,这将真正最大化我们的贸易机会,促进每个人的利益。”


约翰逊说:“自由贸易是我们从科维德危机中恢复过来的一个重要部分,但我也认为加拿大和英国在建设绿色经济方面有着共同的观点。”


新协议将延长加拿大-欧盟全面经济和贸易协定(CETA)的条款,1月1日该协定将不再包括英国。


它将在双边基础上继续提供CETA的好处,包括取消对英国出口的98%加拿大产品的关税。


英国是加拿大的第五大贸易伙伴,仅次于美国、中国、墨西哥和日本。

 

OTTAWA, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- Canada and Britain signed the Canada-United Kingdom Trade Continuity Agreement on Saturday as an interim post-Brexit trade agreement that will take effect on Jan. 1, 2021 when Britain cuts its final ties to the European Union.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his British counterpart Boris Johnson announced the deal at a live video news conference on Saturday.

"Now we get to continue to work on a bespoke agreement, a comprehensive agreement, over the coming years that will really maximize our trade opportunities and boost things for everyone," Trudeau said.

"Free trade is an important part of the way that we're going to bounce back from COVID, but I also think that Canada and the U.K. share a perspective about building back greener," said Johnson.

The new deal will roll over the provisions in the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), which will no longer include Britain on Jan. 1.

It will provide continued access to the benefits of CETA on a bilateral basis, including the elimination of tariffs on 98 percent of Canadian products exported to the United Kingdom.

Britain is Canada's fifth largest trading partner after the United States, China, Mexico and Japan.
