  WTO | Trade policy review - Colombia 1996
It is examining the possibility of establishing a formal trade agreement with MERCOSUR and is also actively engaged in the negotiations to establish a Free Trade Area for the Americas.
Colombia is also pursuing the intensification of regional trading links though its membership of the G3 with Mexico and Venezuela, and of the Association of Caribbean States, and is examining the possibility of establishing a formal trade agreement with MERCOSUR.
Another relevant element of Colombia's foreign trade policy in the present decade is the strengthening of the integration agreement with countries in the Andean region, creating the Andean Community, which includes a common external tariff and the harmonization of legislation which goes beyond that of the commercial arena.

 CIENCIA ergo sum
The Agreement itself is not very innovative; except that at the time it was negotiated, in 1989, the Agreement already contained chapters that where subsequently integrated in the new GATT (WTO) in 1995, such as the chapters on agriculture and services.
The result is that a free trade zone has been established whose foundation is based on the rule of law which protects the weaker party from the "king of the jungle".
Basically, the new Free Trade Agreement is based on the experience of the first years of the Canada-United States Bilateral Free Trade Agreement, the works and negotiations of the GATT/WTO and the defining of new policies for the integration of the Americas.

 The Americas Business Forum: Blanco   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
First, there was Central America, where we now have a free trade agreement with Costa Rica, which is releasing flows of goods, services and investment; it has established disciplines for government purchasing and intellectual property; it has set rules for the elimination of nontariff barriers and set up a mechanism for the settlement of disputes.
In all these agreements, whether now in force or at the negotiation stage, there is the same structure, the same sort of disciplines, a deeper version of those negotiated over many years in the WTO and the GATT Uruguay Round.
The agreement has made progress with the formation of the seven working groups which have been occupied in their tasks over the last year and will be reporting to the ministers tomorrow.

 WTO | Trade policy review conclusions remarks - Colombia 1996
The representative of Colombia began his response by indicating that the trade policy changes, begun in the 1990s, had taken place in the context of much wider changes in the Constitution and the rôle of the State, which were still continuing.
Members took note of the importance attached by Colombia to increased participation in regional trade agreements, including those with the Andean Group, the Group of Three and Chile, as well as its active involvement in the plans for the establishment of a Free Trade Area of the Americas.
The exclusion of agricultural products in the G3 Agreement was related to the sensitivity of these products, but the coverage was very low; this Agreement was concluded within the LAIA framework and had been notified to the WTO Committee on Trade and Development.

Side be side, the North also launched the wide-ranging Uruguay Round of Trade Negotiations, involving areas of economic activity stretching beyond the normal meaning of 'trade' and encompassing areas within the sovereign jurisdiction of countries and their mix of choices.
None of the theories of GATT economists or that of the Fund and the Bank, of unilateral liberalization welfare maximising benefits for the liberaliser, is ever practised by the industrialized countries themselves.
How to reverse this prospect as the world moves to the next millenia, and how to ensure that the post-war decolonisation and independence of the South is not a mere interregnum, is the task and the agenda that faces the South on the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Group of Seventyseven.

Nevertheless, research indicates that countries that are able to pursue policies of external openness to foreign trade and capital, thus permitting the adoption of new technology and know-how, combined with respect for property rights and the rule of law domestically, have the best chance of rapid economic development.
In some areas, such as international trade and the international financial and monetary system, multilateral institutions are in place to provide for the global public good and to discourage non-co-operative behaviour.
Though the principle of free international flows remains solidly anchored in the IMFS and is considered to be a final objective for all countries, capital account liberalisation has been heavily discussed.

 Periodic Note: ALADI
The most recent such agreement is the one concluded between Chile and Ecuador in December 1994, with provisions similar to those in effect between Chile and Mexico, Venezuela, and Colombia.
The possibility of incorporating flexibility into the principle of multilateral action arose when new provisions were added to the GATT agreement, including one that recognizes nonreciprocity in trade relations among developing countries as a principle compatible with the world organization's rules.
The treaty is a flexible instrument that enables easy access for countries wishing to join and also allows a wide range of agreements to be concluded between members and between members and nonmembers in the region, without concessions to the other partners of the Association.

This move "is not intended to severe ties with Mexico and Colombia, but to rearrange such relations through bilateral agreements," Márquez said.
He explained that G3 was basically organized "to open the doors for Venezuela to join the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA)." "The fact that Colombia and Venezuela -both countries of the Andean Community of Nations- entered into a partnership with Mexico makes no sense.
By 2011, cars assembled in Mexico and imported to Venezuela would be free from custom tariffs, which would amount to the death of the Venezuelan automotive sector" which creates a significant number of jobs and provides strong support to the metallurgic and metal-mechanics industries.

One of the most recent examples was Peru's decision to withdraw from the Andean free trade area, a move that could have barred it completely from the Andean Community.
Furthermore, the agreement concluded with the Andean Community– an agreement that ensures Peru's continued presence in the group–could translate into stronger negotiations with MERCOSUR for a free trade agreement by year-end that will link the two integration systems within a South American block.
This is seen in the growth of trade and economic flows between the Asia-Pacific and Latin American countries and in direct Asia-Pacific investment in the region.
