Competition Principles in Trade Agreements: Past Results and Future Trends
12 PM EST
While the negotiators of the World Trade Organization treaty decided not to include competition principles, more recent trade treaties have done so, with such provisions becoming more elaborate and complex. Moreover, it appears likely that competition principles of some kind will be incorporated into the Trans-Pacific Partnership (“TPP”) and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (“TATIP”) currently being negotiated by the United States. This panel will analyze past treaties, the goals served by incorporating competition principles, and whether these goals have been successful, as well as discuss the current state of negotiations on TPP and TATIP in addressing the use of competition principles that has generally gone unremarked until now.
