The North American Free Trade Agreement

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) establishes rules for international trade and investment between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Preceeded by the Free Trade Agreement between the U.S. and Canada, the North American Free Trade Agreement came into force on the 1st of January 1994. NAFTA establishes one of the world’s largest free trade zones, encourages the elaboration of mutually satisfactory dispute settlement, and contains institutional provisions regarding jurisdictional overlaps between international tribunals.
