Belgium ready to sign off on landmark trade pact


10-27-2016 20:17 BJT

Prime Minister Charles Michel said that the deal will be signed soon.

Belgium had effectively blocked the deal, which must be endorsed by all 28 EU member states. It had demanded guarantees that CETA will not harm local farming and other interests.
