These negotiations are in line with the commitment made by political leaders at the 7th India-EU Summit held in Helsinki on 13 October 2006 to launch negotiations on a large-scale trade and investment agreement, based on the report of the India-EU High Level Technical Group. The agreement opened up one of Latin America`s fastest-growing markets. In 2015, the United States exported $25.4 million in beef and beef to Peru. The removal of Peruvian certification requirements, known as the export verification program, has allowed U.S. breeders to access an expanded market. The preface (other languages), published in November 2020 by Sabine Weyand, Director-General of DG Trade, provides an overview of the successes achieved in 2019 and the ongoing work for the EU`s 36 main preferential trade agreements. The working document attached by the Commission services contains detailed information under the trade and partner agreements. The ERPs limit the imposition of performance requirements, such as.B. local content targets or export quotas, as a precondition for the installation, acquisition, extension, management, realisation or operation of an investment.

The EU has concluded trade agreements with these countries/regions, but both sides are negotiating an update. If negotiations on a multilateral trade agreement remain unsuccessful, many nations will instead negotiate bilateral agreements. However, new agreements often result in competing agreements between other countries, eliminating the benefits of the free trade agreement (FTA) between the two home countries.
