Negotiations

This section contains news and analysis about bilateral and regional free trade and investment agreements under negotiation. These agreements can take a number of forms:

-  free trade agreements (FTAs), sometimes called Economic Partnership Agreements or Association Agreements
-  bilateral investment treaties (BITs), sometimes called Investment Protection and Promotion Agreements
-  trade and investment framework agreements (TIFAs)
-  bilateral WTO accession agreements
-  others

The material is generally arranged by country, by region or by FTA negotiation. (Only those negotiations that generate a lot of discussion or activism are covered.)

Actual texts of these agreements, or where to find them elsewhere on the internet, can be found in the Texts of agreements section.
