MONTREAL, April 2, 2013 /CNW/ - IPEX Management Inc. participated in a roundtable discussion with the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway to discuss the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) negotiations.
"We commend the government's and Minister Fast's work to reduce barriers to trade with the European Union," said Veso Sobot, Director of Corporate Affairs for Ipex Management Inc. "We are confident a trade agreement with Europe will lead to a more free and open exchange of goods and services between our two economies."
An agreement would immediately eliminate EU tariffs on all chemicals and plastics upon entry into force, creating new opportunities for companies in this important sector to the Canadian economy.
We are Canada's largest manufacturer of infrastructure pipe for municipal, plumbing, electrical and industrial applications. With state-of-the art manufacturing facilities and distribution centers across North America, the IPEX name is synonymous with quality and performance.
