EENI- School of International Business

Module Module “Free Trade Agreements (FTA) and Regional Organisations”

  1. Master in Business in the BRICS-MNS Countries
  2. Master in Business in the Emerging Markets (e-learning)

In emerging markets there are several Trade Agreements (Free Trade Agreements (FTA), Economic Partnership...), both regional and extra-regional:

  1. Intra-regional: the ASEAN, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), the Bay of Bengal Initiative (BIMSTEC), the South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA), the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEc), the MERCOSUR, the NAFTA, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)
  2. Extra-regional: Trans-Pacific Agreement, the APEC, agreements with the European Union (EU)
  3. Bilateral intra-regional: China-ASEAN-India-Korea
  4. Bilateral extra-regional: China-Chile, Mexico-Japan

Furthermore, each emerging country can have Free Trade Agreements (FTA) with third countries. For example, Singapore has agreements with Peru, Panama, Australia, China, Korea, the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), the United States, Japan, Jordan, New Zealand, and India, and is a member of the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement.

A company wishing to do business in emerging markets should know all these Agreements in force for all target markets in the region.
