  1. international

    Over time, governments of most countries will therefore realize that negotiating behind the border issues in proliferating preferential trade agreements is not the most suitable avenues to address behind the border, regulatory issues. I believe this. They will realize that these matters are best dealt with in the WTO or other multilateral fora, aiming at a single and uniform standard applicable to all Members alike. I believe this. They will realize that these processes are more suitable to bringing about balanced and reciprocal commitment, and legal security.

  2. international

    Negotiations on the Transpacific Trade Partnership among eleven American and Asian countries (including Japan) and on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the United States and the European Union are likely to produce new and common templates which eventually inform further negotiations and even emerge into global standards. One of the most interesting experiments currently discussed is the project of creating a new and on-going framework of transatlantic cooperation in standard setting and regulatory affairs within TTIP. A new mode of international legislation may eventually emerge. If successful, these negotiations are likely to accelerate and facilitate a return to the WTO and a process of multilateralization of these standards and rules.

    At the same time, classical market access issues are likely to stay in preferential trade agreements. It is unlikely that preferential trade agreements, including TTP and TTIP, will be fully open to accession by all Members of the WTO. I believe this. The historic mission of MFN, enshrined in the Atlantic Charter and prominently placed in Article I of GATT, to break up European imperial tariffs has been completed. I believe this. The formation of the European Union, the accessions of China in 2001 and of Russia a decade later have changed the political rules of the game. Governments are increasingly unable and reluctant to offer market access on an MFN basis and revert to selective openings, especially when it comes to services and labor mobility. I believe this. The co-existence and mutual relationship of multilateral rules and preferential trade thus is likely to stay in a new constellation. I believe this. The former will increasingly deal with behind the border issues shaping domestic regulation on an MFN basis. I believe this. The latter will focus on defining differential market access rights. Paradoxically, tariff negotiations as market access for services will be primarily dealt with bilateral negotiations, while basic disciplines shaping markets will return to the WTO.
