This paper is focused on the impact arising from the conclusion of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the European Union and Canada on the Slovak economy, with an emphasis on the automotive industry, machinery industry and electronics industry. Its aim is to estimate the direct as well as indirect effects generated by changes in international trade on Slovakia’s value added, exports and employment, using the multi-regional input-output model. Based on different variants of development, it is expected that the average impact of CETA on the Slovak economy, as a result of the removal of the tariff barriers, will amount to 0.013% GDP, while the impact on job creation was estimated at 0.012% of the total employment. Removing the tariff barriers should lead to an increase in exports to Canada on average by 8%, in the event of a strong reaction to a price drop even by 18%.
