EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement

Starting 21 September this agreement with Canada will benefit both European businesses and European consumers. It boosts trade, creating jobs, growth and new opportunities. More than just removing customs duties, it safeguards people’s rights at work and protects the environment.
This sets a new standard for global trade and the beginning of a new era in the EU-Canada relationship.

Would you like more options for your pension across the EU?

Consumers will benefit from EU-wide portability, full transparency of the costs of the pan-European pension product and the ability to switch providers.

More choice and mobility would lead to cheaper and better pension products. Share your views on our proposal: http://europa.eu/!BK88yd

"Beautiful people buy ugly fruit" – this is the motto of EU-funded project FLAW 4 LIFE
About half the food produced in the world goes to waste every year. So FLAW 4 LIFE is fighting against food waste due to appearance. They promote a responsible, local and sustainable consumption, creating an alternative market for "ugly" fruit and vegetables.

We reject and condemn all forms and manifestations of racism and xenophobia.
They are incompatible with the values and principles upon which the EU is founded. The EU is founded on the principles of liberty, democracy, respect for human rights & fundamental freedoms, & the rule of law.

#ThisIsTheEU #NoToRacism

Not just words, but actions. The EU has introduced and initiated a broad set of measures to combat different forms and manifestations of racism and xenophobia: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/fundamental-rights/racism-xenophobia/index_en.htm
