What Are Global Trade Agreements

15. Baccini L, Urpelainen J. International Institutions and Domestic Politics: Can Preferential Trade Agreements Help Leaders Advance Economic Reforms? J Polit. (2014) 76:195–214. doi: 10.1017/S0022381613001278 A trade agreement signed between more than two parties (usually in the neighborhood or in the same region) is classified as multilateral. They face the greatest obstacles – in the negotiation of the substance and in implementation. The more countries involved, the more difficult it is to achieve mutual satisfaction. Once this type of trade agreement is finalized, it becomes a very powerful agreement. The larger the GDP of the signatories, the greater the impact on other global trade relations. The most important multilateral trade agreement is the North American Free Trade Agreement[5] between the United States, Canada and Mexico. [6] All agreements concluded outside the WTO framework (which grant additional benefits beyond the WTO most-favoured-nation level, but apply only between signatories and not to other WTO Members) are designated by the WTO as preferential. Under WTO rules, these agreements are subject to certain requirements such as notification to the WTO and universal reciprocity (preferences should also apply to each signatory to the agreement) where unilateral preferences (some of the signatories enjoy preferential market access from other signatories without reducing their own customs duties) are allowed only in exceptional circumstances and as a temporary measure.
