BEIJING (F) — After eight years of talks, China and 14 other nations, from Japan to Myanmar to New Zealand, on Sunday officially signed one of the world`s largest regional free trade agreements, a pact partially designed by Beijing to counterbalance U.S. influence in the region. UNCTAD`s work programme on international investment agreements (IIAs) actively assists policy makers, government officials and other IIA stakeholders in reforming IIAs to make them more conducive to sustainable development and inclusive growth. International investment regimes operate at the bilateral, regional, interregional and multilateral levels. Policymakers, negotiators, civil society and other stakeholders need to be well informed about foreign direct investment, international investment agreements (IIAs) and their impact on sustainable development. Main objectives of UNCTAD`s IIA work programme • Reform of the international investment agreement (IIA) regime to improve its sustainable development dimension; • Comprehensive analysis of key issues arising from the complexity of the international investment regime • Development of a wide range of instruments to support the formulation of a more balanced international investment policy.

International investment agreements (IIAs) are divided into two types: (1) bilateral investment agreements and (2) investment agreements. A bilateral investment agreement (BIT) is an agreement between two countries on the promotion and protection of investments made by investors of the countries concerned in the territory of the other country. The vast majority of AIIs are BITs. The category of contracts with investment rules (TIPs) includes different types of investment agreements that are not NTBs. Three main types of NTPs can be distinguished: 1. global economic contracts, which contain obligations usually found in THE ILO (e.g. B a free trade agreement with an investment chapter); (2) contracts with limited investment provisions (e.g. B only those relating to the creation of investments or the free transfer of investment funds); and (3) contracts that contain only “framework clauses”, such as.

B those relating to cooperation in the field of investment and/or a mandate for future negotiations on investment issues. In addition to AIIs, there is also an open category of investment-related instruments (IRIs). It includes several binding and non-binding instruments, such as model agreements and drafts, multilateral conventions on dispute settlement and arbitration rules, documents adopted by international organizations and others. The pact will most likely formalize business between countries instead of reshaping it. R.C.E.P. abolishes customs duties mainly for products already eligible for a franchise regime under existing free trade agreements. It allows countries to maintain tariffs on imports in sectors they deem particularly important or sensitive. . .
