What is a Multilateral Agreement?

How can define a Multilateral Agreement?


Multilateral (or Regional) Agreements

Multilateral trade agreements are among three countries or more. These are the most difficult to confer. They set rules of trade between several countries. The greater the number of participants, the more difficult the negotiations are. They are also more complex, since each country has its own needs and requests. Multilateral agreements shape international trade unions, such as WTO, EU, NAFTA, etc.  Once settled, multilateral agreements are very powerful. They cover a larger geographic area. That confers a greater competitive advantage on the signatories. All countries also give each other most favored nation status. They agree to treat each other equally.

For example, Agreement on South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA).
