By 15 January 2019

ZAGREB, January 15, 2019 - Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, who on Monday received Canadian Parliament Speaker Geoff Regan, said after the talks that the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) offered an opportunity for Croatian businesses to deliver their goods and services on the Canadian market.

Plenković underscored the importance of strengthening of bilateral economic cooperation and spoke about the common values which Croatia and Canada, members of NATO and other international associations, share, the government's public relations office reported.

Croatian Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković and his Canadian counterpart Regan earlier on Monday hailed the benefits of the trade agreement between Canada and the European Union, underscoring that the CETA and NATO membership reinforce overall cooperation between Croatia and Canada.

Croatia was the third country to ratify CETA.

On Tuesday, Regan and his hosts in Zagreb will hold a press conference on the occasion of the first anniversary of CETA coming into force.
