Belgian Walloon region parliament backs EU-Canada trade deal

The parliament of Belgium's French-speaking region of Wallonia voted in favour of a planned EU-Canada trade agreement on Friday, ending its opposition that had threatened to destroy the entire deal.

Lawmakers of Wallonia, which had led Belgian opposition to the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), voted 58 for to five against.

All 28 EU governments back CETA, which supporters say could increase trade by 20 percent, but Belgium's central government had been prevented from giving its consent because it needed approval from sub-federal authorities.
