Matrix of FTAs in the world

Matrix of FTAs in the world (as of 16 October 2009)

Please see attached a table with all (AFAIK) FTAs in the World. I think it would be a nice addition to your site.

The criteria for inclusion of some agreement in the table was conservative and restricted - PTAs and other FTA-like agreements were not included (if all such are added there would be too many x and no clear patterns could be shown). The WTO RTA register was a good starting point, but it was incorrect in some cases (about particular members in some agreements that have later withdrawn, or never actually ratified, etc.)
