A modernized CIFTA will improve access to the Israeli market for Canadian companies through further elimination and reduction of tariffs on agricultural and fisheries products. With the inclusion of new progressive elements on gender, small and medium-sized enterprises and corporate social responsibility, as well as labour and environmental protections, the modernized CIFTA will signal the importance of progressive trade and ensuring that the benefits and opportunities that flow from trade and investment are more widely shared. Since CIFTA first came into effect over two decades ago, Canada’s two-way merchandise trade with Israel has more than tripled, totalling $1.7 billion in 2017

Israel: Israel is a wealthy country with a technologically advanced market economy and a highly skilled workforce. Improvements in the Canada-Isreal Free Trade Agreement (CIFTA) in 2014 have created opportunities and have eliminated and reduced tariffs on agricultural and fisheries products, furthering trade ties with Canada. Israel's major industries produce high-technology products, metal products, electronic and biomedical equipment, chemicals, processed foods and other agricultural products. Top imports include mineral fuels and oil, precious metals and stones, electric machinery and equipment, machinery and mechanical appliances, and automobiles and trucks. Canada has an established trade and investment relationship with Israel, with high potential for business opportunities across a wide range of sectors. 1. 2. ns/Pages/din.aspx 3. 4. - francisco/AboutIsrael/Economy/Pages/The-Israeli-Economy- Today.aspx 5. - purchasing-power-1000919395 6.
