History of Commercial Treaties

Commercial treaties have a history going back to ancient times. With the resurgence of trade in the early medieval period, the commercial treaty began its modern evolution. This early commercial treaty was usually bilateral, and its prime objective was to establish the legal rights of alien traders, the idea of “national treatment.” Removal of obstructions to trade was only a secondary motive.
