October 6, 2017 - Ottawa, Ontario - Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

As part of the Government's efforts to foster growth for farmers through new export opportunities and well-paying jobs, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Lawrence MacAulay will lead a trade mission to Germany, Belgium and Italy from October 7 to 17, 2017.

With the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) provisionally applied, the Minister will be in Europe with Canadian industry leaders to build new market access into the European Union (EU) for Canada's key agricultural product exports, such as beef, pork, grains, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables, and processed products.

In Germany, Minister MacAulay will participate in ANUGA, the world's largest food and beverage trade show, where Canada's agricultural sector will be showcasing Canadian goods and promoting CETA's export opportunities. In Belgium, Minister MacAulay will hold bilateral meetings with senior EU representatives, host meetings with key European industry stakeholders, and tour the Port of Antwerp, a gateway into the EU for Canadian agriculture products. In Italy, the Minister will attend the G7 Agriculture Ministers' meetings and attend World Food Day events in Rome with His Holiness Pope Francis.

The Minister will have the opportunity to engage with and support Canada's agricultural industry at ANUGA, as well as during meetings with key European buyers and distributors in both Belgium and Italy.
