Over a Coffee with Daniel Costello, Canadian Ambassador to the EU

Daniel Costello, Canadian Ambassador to the EU, joins EURACTIV’s Brian Maguire to talk over a coffee about the relationship between the the EU and Canada, where it is today and what it could look like in the future.

Costello has over 20 years experience in Canadian government and nearly 15 with Foreign Affairs, including as former Head of Cabinet to the Foreign Minister, Assistant Deputy Minister for Europe, and Ambassador to Poland.

Costello and Maguire discuss CETA, the trade deal signed between the EU and Canada in 2017 to decrease tariffs and make it easier to trade goods and services between the two economic areas. A year and a half after it was signed, they reflect on what the ambitious trade agreement has achieved.
