British exports to Canada have increased by 13.7 percent since a trade deal between the (EU) and Canada was introduced.
Businesses are able to trade freely with Canada, without paying any duties at Canadian customs. Meat exports from Britain to Canada increased by 36.3 percent last year, and wine exports grew by 16.6 percent.
“The rapid growth in UK exports to Canada is great news for British people, who are already seeing how our free trade agenda can help to create jobs, boost economic growth and provide more choice for consumers,” Britain’s International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said.
“CETA is one of the most ambitious free trade agreements and it will eliminate almost every tariff on goods between our two nations, giving a boost to a range of British businesses from our motor industry to our brewers and distillers,” Fox said.
