Canada Apparel Imports
January to August 2018
CETA positively affects Canadian apparel import from EU
In just one year since taking effect, CETA has generated significant benefits, with increase in trade between Canada and the EU. Apparel import from Portugal, Luxembourg, Bulgaria and Romania increased following slashed tariff lines to zero per cent. Despite the growth from EU, Asian manufacturing hubs Vietnam, Indonesia and India dominated the overall Canadian apparel import during the review period, while Bangladesh felt the dent in its export performance.
