Signing of the EU-Australia Wine Agreement (press release, 1.12.2008) The parties also discussed the amendment of the annexes on geographical diseases and oenological practices of the Agreement between the European Community and Canada on trade in wines and spirits, which has been included in CETA. Canada stated that updating the annexes was an extremely complex and time-consuming exercise and was looking for ways to tighten up the amendment process. The EU said the EU`s procedure for approving the amendment of these annexes was simple and straight forth and encouraged Canada to start the amendment process as soon as possible, as this issue is of great importance to the EU. The parties agreed to continue the discussion on the issue in the weeks following the meeting. The increase in icewine market share in Europe is mainly due to the Dutch market.
