Dear Members and Friends,

CERBA is inviting you to a business brief "Canada-Belarus Trade Update: Cooperation Opportunities after the Removal of Belarus from the Area Control List"

WHEN: August 24, 2017 at 3:00 pm

WHERE: First Canadian Place, 100 King Street West, Suite 1600, Toronto, ON M5X 1G5

AGENDA:

3:00 - 3:30 pm | Registration and welcome coffee

3:30 - 4:00 pm | Welcome word from Martha Harrison, Chair, CERBA Toronto Chapter (TBC)

4:00 - 4:30 pm | Presentation by Welcome word from Dmitry Basik, Charge d'Affair, Embassy of the Republic of Belarus to Canada

4:30 - 4.45 pm | Q&A Session

4.45 pm - 5.30 pm | Networking reception

The event will feature participation of a Belarusian business delegation, including such companies as Bellegprom, Linen Mill of Orsha, Mogotex, Milavitsa, Elema, and others.

The event is to provide information to Canadian businesses about changes in access to the Belarus market that had not been available since 2006 when Belarus was first added to the Area Control List. In spite of the restrictive measures, Canadian exports to Belarus totalled nearly $34 million and imports totalled nearly $50 million in 2014. 

On June 20, 2017 the Government of Canada finalized the regulatory process to amend the Area Control List (ACL) of the Export and Import Permits Act (EIPA). This amendment formally removes Belarus from the ACL, a list of countries to which the Governor in Council deems it necessary to control the export or transfer of any goods and technology. Lifting the sanctions against Belarus will further increase the trade opportunities between Canada and Belarus... Read more on the Global Affairs Canada website.
