CETA`s Investor-State Dispute Resolution (EID) provisions could set a precedent for similar agreements under the TTIP. In addition, critics argue that CETA ES would allow US companies to sue EU member states through Canadian subsidiaries.    The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) (unofficial Canada-Europe trade agreement) is a free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union.    It was applied on an interim basis and thus eliminated 98% of the existing tariffs between the two parties. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently lamented the declining prospects of a Canadian-style agreement in the ongoing Brexit negotiations and said: “After 45 years of membership, they are not ready……. to offer canada the same conditions as Canada. This is how we will prepare ourselves with great heart and confidence to accept the alternative. In his recent Brexit blog, Matheson Managing`s partner, Michael Jackson, examines why the UK has continued to identify an agreement on the Canadian model as the preferred outcome of trade negotiations; how this can be measured up to the status quo of EU membership; and what is the “Australian alternative” that the United Kingdom has declared is ready to adopt the Canadian model. In this regard, the NFSC is considering various possible aspects of the Canada-style agreement – and the alternative in the absence of an agreement. Mr Johnson has repeatedly stressed that he is considering a “Super Canada Plus” agreement with the EU and not a closer economic partnership. “When they say Canada, they don`t literally talk about Canada. They represent an equivalent balance between access and engagement,” said Sam Lowe, senior Research Fellow at the Centre for European Reform. While Northern Ireland remains in the UK`s customs territory, it is subject to EU tariffs on goods from the UK when they are at risk of entering the EU.
Northern Ireland will also be subject to EU tariffs on products from Britain when they are partly produced in Northern Ireland. In addition, Northern Ireland will be subject to EU subsidy controls. Ultimately, these rules could apply to subsidies across the UK if UK public assistance could theoretically have an impact on trade between Northern Ireland and the EU, as established by the ECJ. The Prime Minister met earlier this month in Downing Street with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to express his openness to an agreement on the Canadian model, reports the Times.
