Turkey Agreements

IiA Navigator This database of IAs – the IIA browser – is managed by UNCTAD`s IIA Section. You can browse the IIAs concluded by a particular country or group of countries, view the recently concluded ais or use the extended contract search for demanding research tailored to your needs. Please cite as: UNCTAD, International Investment Agreements Navigator, available under investmentpolicy.unctad.org/international-investment-agreements/ Trade in agricultural commodities is governed by three bilateral agricultural agreements negotiated between the EFTA State, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland/Liechtenstein and Turkey. These agreements are part of the instruments for the creation of the free trade area between the EFTA States and Turkey. They provide for important concessions on both sides, taking into account the respective sensitivities. Each agreement contains specific rules of origin, usually based on the “fully acquired” origin criteria. Turkey is a member of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (Euromed) and, as such, should conclude free trade agreements with all other Mediterranean partners in order to create a Euro-Mediterranean free trade area. IIA Mapping Project The IIA Mapping Project is a cooperative initiative between UNCTAD and universities around the world to represent the content of IIAs. The resulting database serves as a tool to understand trends in the development of the IIA, assess the prevalence of different policy approaches and identify examples of contracts. The “Mapping of IIA Content” allows you to browse the results of previous projects (the page will be updated regularly when the new results are updated).

In line with this strategy to increase its competitiveness in global markets, the EU has started to negotiate free trade agreements with specific provisions on services, investment, public procurement and intellectual property rights. Turkey is preparing for such a changing environment. After starting or starting negotiations in parallel with the EU, Turkey is also adapting to the wide range of agreements and is negotiating new generation free trade agreements with its potential partners. The Parties recognize that economic development, social development and environmental protection are interdependent. In Chapter 7, they reaffirm their commitment to multilateral environmental and labour agreements and principles and commit to maintaining the level of protection, while recognizing the right of each party to establish its own level of environmental and labour protection. Arbitration procedures shall not apply to this Chapter. Learn more about Canada`s trade and investment agreements: Types of contracts and how trade and investment agreements are gradually evolving….
