  Emma McClarkin (ECR ). – Madam President, I would like to say this: ‘O Canada’, how long the EU has kept you waiting. After seven long years, the champions of free trade have battled through, and now we are at the final furlong. To be clear, CETA is an ambitious, modern and comprehensive trade agreement, which will bring tremendous benefits to the EU as a whole and to each one of the Member States. Once fully implemented, it is expected to increase bilateral trade between the EU and Canada by 23%, representing approximately EUR 26 billion per year. It will lead to the creation of jobs and economic growth, allowing small and medium-size enterprises access to the Canadian market, free of barriers. As a champion of free trade, I welcome this Agreement and look forward to seeing a positive vote in this Chamber today. In times of growing protectionism, the EU must not underestimate the benefits of trade agreements like this, especially when we are negotiating with reliable and strategic partners such as Canada who are, and remain, our allies.
