Trade Agreement Mexico Eu

The European Union and Mexico have reached an “agreement in principle” on the main trade parties of a new eu-Mexico association agreement. The new agreement replaces a previous agreement between the EU and Mexico in 2000. On 28 April 2020, Mexico and the European Union concluded negotiations on modernising the trade pillar of the agreement. This was the last outstanding element of their new trade agreement. The objectives of the agreement (Article 1) include the gradual liberalisation of trade in goods, in accordance with GATT Article XXIV, and the liberalisation of trade in services in accordance with Article V of the GATS. It is therefore a second-generation free trade agreement, which includes, in addition to trade in goods, trade in services, investment and public procurement. The Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation Agreement (Comprehensive Agreement), which sets out the objectives and mechanisms for liberalising trade in goods and services, was approved by the Mexican Senate on 20 March 2000 and by the European Parliament on 6 May 1999. Given that the agreement between the United States, Mexico – the agreement that replaced Nafta on 1 July – offers less favourable terms than mexico previously enjoyed, the signing of a new agreement with the EU is timely. The agreement provides for the establishment of a joint committee (Article 70) to monitor and manage the agreement. Information sharing and consultations can take place in the joint committee. The joint committee also makes decisions in cases under the agreement or makes recommendations. The Joint Committee will also continue to examine the elimination of other barriers to trade between EFTA states and the further development of the agreement. The interim agreement, which was to be in force until the comprehensive agreement came into force, was approved by the Mexican Senate on 23 April 1998.

The proceeds of this agreement were approved by the European Parliament on 13 May 1998 and the parties exchanged instruments for ratification on 30 June 1998, allowing the interim agreement on accompanying and accompanying measures to enter into force on 1 July 1998. Nevertheless, parties reaching an agreement should be allowed to feel at least one moment of pride for the culmination of their efforts. This is probably the current feeling of the EU and Mexico, after four years of negotiations, when they concluded a new trade agreement in April. The agreement makes almost all goods exchanged between the two parties duty-free, but that does not mean that all differences of opinion have been put to bed. However, the general incentives cited by De Biévre are generally not sufficient to encourage exporters, trade sectors and authorities on both sides to invest in one-year trade negotiations. Additional political incentives should give this general idea a final boost. The current update of the EU-Mexico agreement has been prompted to deepen and consolidate its commitment. The rules of origin of industrial goods (Annex I) relating to the definition of the concept of native products and methods of administrative cooperation are based on the current European model and retain the general structure and content of standard European rules.

The specific list rules (Appendix 1 of Appendix I) of the annex are based on the EU-Mexico framework, adapted to the specific needs and requirements of the EFTA states and Mexico, taking into account trade flows between the parties. Negotiations with Mexico began in May 2016 and the two sides reached an agreement in principle on the trade side in April 2018.
