DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND INTERNATIONAL TRADE

CONSULTATIONS ON POSSIBLE FREE TRADE AGREEMENT NEGOTIATIONS WITH UKRAINE

The Government of Canada is seeking the views of Canadians on the scope of a possible free trade agreement (FTA) between Canada and Ukraine.

This notice is part of the Government of Canada’s domestic consultation process with business, citizen-based organizations and individual Canadians, as well as with provincial and territorial governments, to obtain advice and views on priorities, objectives and concerns to help outline the parameters of this initiative.

Background

On September 22, 2009, the Honourable Stockwell Day, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, and Ukraine’s Minister of the Economy, Bohdan Danylyshyn, announced the launch of talks between Canada and Ukraine on a free trade agreement (FTA). Both Canada and Ukraine agreed to meet in the coming months to explore the feasibility of launching formal FTA negotiations.

Ukraine is the largest country in Europe — with a highly educated population of 46 million, a diversified industrial base, and a substantial natural resource endowment. Ukraine became a member of the World Trade Organization in May 2008. In addition, Canada and Ukraine have signed a Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (1995), a Convention for the Avoidance of Double Taxation (1996) and an Air Transport Agreement (1999).

Canada and Ukraine enjoy very positive commercial relations. Canadian merchandise exports increased by close to 80% to $229.7 million from 2007 to 2008. Key export sectors to Ukraine include machinery, fish and seafood, pharmaceuticals, aerospace, plastics, vehicles and agricultural products, including pork and alcoholic beverages. Merchandise imports from Ukraine in 2008 totalled $201.7 million with iron, steel and related products, fertilizers, and railway/locomotive components making up the majority of these goods.

Canada, the first Western nation to recognize Ukraine’s independence in 1991, supports Ukraine’s democratic transformation, economic reforms and its efforts to integrate into Euro-Atlantic institutions. Canada is also the fourth largest donor of technical assistance to Ukraine.

Additional information on Canada’s relationship with Ukraine can be found on the Web sites of the following department, embassies and service:

Submissions by interested parties

The Government is embarking on a public consultation process to allow all interested stakeholders an early opportunity to provide comments, input and advice on a possible free trade agreement with Ukraine. It is essential that the Government of Canada be fully aware of the interests and potential sensitivities of Canadians with respect to this initiative. We welcome advice and views on any priorities, objectives and concerns relating to a possible free trade agreement with Ukraine. In particular, we are seeking views with respect to the following:

  • Opinions on areas of goods export interest (identified by HS/Tariff codes, if possible), including products that would benefit from the early removal of tariffs and other barriers by Ukraine.
  • Views on market access liberalization for Ukrainian products (identified by HS/Tariff codes, if possible) into the Canadian market, including input on those products for which the elimination of tariffs should be expedited or phased-in over time.
  • Advice and views on trade in services, particularly the identification of sectors/activities of export interest for Canadian service providers, and opinions on domestic regulatory measures that restrict or otherwise affect market access for Canadian service providers.
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding the temporary entry of business persons from Canada into Ukraine and into Canada from Ukraine (e.g. impediments to entering or working in Ukraine on a temporary basis including licensing or certification requirements at the border).
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding measures affecting exports destined for Ukraine, including non-tariff barriers (such as import licensing), technical barriers to trade (including technical regulations, standards and/or conformity assessment procedures) and sanitary and phytosanitary measures.
  • Views on general rules of origin and on appropriate rules of origin for specific products or sectors.
  • Advice on “trade facilitation” issues (e.g. significant impediments related to import procedures).
  • Advice, views and experiences with customs procedures and with commercial goods entering and/or leaving Ukraine.
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding investment barriers faced by Canadian investors in Ukraine, including restrictions imposed on foreign ownership or entry to market, questions of transparency of regulation, performance requirements (i.e. local content requirements, use of local labour and services, etc.), and any other impediments/barriers.
  • Advice and views on priority government procurement markets for Canadian suppliers in Ukraine, including the government entities or enterprises of interest to Canadian suppliers and the goods, services or construction services that Canadian suppliers are interested in selling to those government organizations.
  • Advice, views and experiences regarding barriers (e.g. availability and transparency of information, domestic preferences) when selling or attempting to sell to governments in Ukraine.
  • Views and experiences with the protection of intellectual property rights.
  • Advice and views on competition policy matters, including development of possible cooperation mechanisms.
  • Views on ways to reflect the interests and values of Canadians in the area of sustainable development, environmental protection and conservation.
  • Views on ways to reflect the interests and values of Canadians in the areas of workers’ rights, human rights, transparency in business and commercial practices and other social concerns, as they relate to Ukraine.
  • Advice and views on ways to enhance the bilateral economic relationship, such as cooperation on science and technology.
  • Advice and experiences regarding trade remedies (i.e. anti-dumping and countervailing measures) taken on trade between Ukraine and Canada.
  • Views on other related issues not mentioned above.

All interested parties are invited to submit their views by November 23, 2009. Comments will also be welcome after that date. Please be advised that any information received as a result of this consultation will be considered as public information, unless explicitly stated otherwise. Submissions should include

1. The contributor’s name and address and, if applicable, his/ her organization, institution or business.

2. The specific issues being addressed.

3. Precise information on the rationale for the positions taken, including any significant impact it may have on Canada’s domestic or foreign interests.

(b) a notice of compliance has been issued for the vaccine under paragraph C.08.004(1)(a) of the Regulations.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Interim Order.)

Infection with the novel influenza A H1N1 virus has the potential to cause serious and life-threatening disease which has been associated with several fatalities. It will likely not be possible for a manufacturer of the vaccine to collect evidence of safety and clinical effectiveness necessary for a notice of compliance to be issued under the Food and Drug Regulations in time to provide the public with protection against the spread of the virus during the current flu season. There is a need to balance timely access to the vaccine with the time needed to assess the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. Therefore, an Interim Order is required to provide an alternate pathway to allow for the authorization for sale of the vaccine.

Under this Interim Order, the manufacturer is required to submit all the safety and effectiveness data available at the time of the vaccine submission as well as a plan to allow for the collection, assessment and reporting of information about the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness. This plan is reviewed as part of the vaccine submission process and the manufacturer is required to adhere to the plan once the vaccine is authorized for sale under this Interim Order.

Based on all of the information available, the Minister will authorize the sale of the vaccine if it is reasonable to believe that the vaccine may be effective in providing protection against the novel influenza A H1N1 virus, and the known and potential benefits of the vaccine outweigh the known and potential risks. The Minister may add terms and conditions to the authorization for sale respecting the manufacturer’s plan. The Minister may suspend the authorization for sale if the manufacturer does not comply with the plan.

The authorization for sale will be revoked if the Minister considers that the known and potential benefits of the vaccine no longer outweigh the known and potential risks. It will also be revoked if a notice of compliance is issued.

In order to facilitate timely access to the vaccine throughout Canada, this Interim Order also permits the Minister to allow the manufacturer to deliver the vaccine to locations specified by the Minister prior to its authorization for sale.
