Déclaration du Royaume de Belgique relative aux conditions de pleins pouvoirs par l’Etat fédéral et les Entités fédérées pour la signature du CETA
A. La Belgique précise que, conformément à son droit constitutionnel, le constat que le processus de ratification du CETA a échoué de manière permanente et définitive au sens de la déclaration du Conseil du 18/10/16, peut résulter des procédures d’assentiment engagées tant au niveau du Parlement fédéral qu’au niveau de chacune des assemblées parlementaires des Régions et des Communautés.

1. Helping to Create Growth and Jobs at Home
CETA could help to boost growth and jobs across Europe. What's more, every €1 bn in exports from the EU supports on average around 14,000 jobs. And such jobs tend to be higher paid than ones which don't rely on exports - up to 15% more for higher-skill ones.
2. Ending Customs Duties
CETA will eliminate all duties on industrial goods, saving European exporters almost €600 million a year.

Bush (2001-09) and Barack Obama (2009-17).

Advocacy can be defined as the practical use of knowledge for purposes of social changes. These changes can be directed to government policies, laws, procedures or sometimes to ourselves. Advocacy is therefore an act of supporting an issue and persuading the decision makers on how to act in order to support that issue. Advocacy is a process aimed at achieving some specific results, it is not a one way activity.
