ILP9 - Trade and Investment in Asia
There has been a growing trend for regionalism and regional trading blocs, and the entering in of regional trade agreements. What is known as the ‘ASEAN+6 region’, or the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), is a result of this regional approach to trade and open markets. These agreements provide opportunities for Australian businesses to enter new markets, and vice versa, and are important facilitators of cross-border activity and economic prosperity.
This subject looks at investment treaties, such as the now defunct Trans Pacific Partnership and its successor, the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). It also considers the role of global trade organisations, foreign direct investment and dispute resolution in international trade and investment.
