Overview of regional trade negotiations and agreements.

This month’s trends

Between March and April 2016, the global trade policy agenda continued to be defined by the effects that the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been having on the map of trade agreements. At the regional level there was greater dynamism in bilateral regional agreements and integration and negotiation schemes in comparison with the previous period.
