ECIPE Seminar: Free Trade Agreements and their Effect on Third Countries

April 04 2019
Venue: ECIPE Office, Av des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Henrik Isakson, Maria Åsenius, Jacques Pelkmans, Erik van der Marel
Time: 14:15

Please join us for a discussion on FTAs and their third-country effects.

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) have been growing in number recently – and they are also covering a wider variety of policy areas. As a consequence, their direct effects on bilateral trade between partnering countries should go up. However, FTAs can also lead to trade diversion and, potentially, their negative effect on trade with third countries could be significant.

  • What does that mean for third-countries outside the FTAs?
  • Are they impacted positively or negatively with such comprehensive FTAs?

The Kommerskollegium has investigated these questions in a new study and provides an analysis of market access issues for non-participating countries of FTAs. One of the conclusions is that this impact on third-country market access can be positive or negative, depending on the actual design of the FTA
