Trade Agreement Investment Treaties

The category of contracts with investment rules (TIPs) includes different types of investment agreements that are not NTBs. Three main types of TP can be distinguished: 1. comprehensive economic contracts that contain obligations that are usually found in the ILO (e.g. 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). .
