SETTLEMENT OF PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL TRADE DISPUTES


Among the free trade agreements signed by Mexico which contain specific provisions on private international trade disputes, some establish the possibility of creating advisory committees on the matter: FTA with USA and Canada Art. 2022; FTA with Chile Section II, Art. 18-19; FTA with Costa Rica, Annex 2 of Art. 16-01; FTA with Nicaragua, Art. 20-18; and FTA with Colombia, Art.19-19.

To date, the Committee established under Article 2022 of the NAFTA is the only active committee on the matter. In the following link you will find detailed information on its composition and work carried out.
