Manley to warn Europe of damage if free-trade talks with Canada fail
Sep 26, 2013 / 5:02 pm
OTTAWA - The head of Canada's leading business organization plans to warn the European Union that its credibility will be damaged if the long-delayed free-trade deal with Canada breaks down.
In an interview with The Canadian Press, John Manley, president of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, says he will deliver that message Friday in a speech in Ireland.
Manley is aiming his speech at the entire 28-country European bloc that has been locked in four years of stalled trade talks with Canada.
Manley's remarks are a reply to the EU officials who have publicly blamed Canada for the failure to finalize a deal in the long-running negotiations.
Manley says a failed Canada-EU process could hurt the Europeans in their coming negotiations with the United States.
Manley says he wants his European audience to understand that a failed negotiation with Canada could hurt them as well.
