The Foreign Ministry says that CETA will significantly improve access to a high purchasing power market for Lithuanian goods and services and will allow Lithuanian companies to participate in public procurement procedures in Canada.

The free trade agreement will eliminate 99 percent of customs duties between the EU and Canada.
