MULTILATERAL AGREEMENT ON INVESTMENT: CONSOLIDATED TEXTS AND COMMENTARY
This document consolidates the reports (texts and commentary) by the MAI Expert and Drafting Groups
(Note by the Secretariat)
The attached document is a compilation of the reports by Expert Groups 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5* and by Drafting Groups 1, 2, and 3.** It represents results of the work by the different Groups up to the 18-20 December meeting of the Negotiating Group. The Chairman's Conclusions on issues relating to Drafting Group 3 and Expert Group 3 [DAFFE/MAI(97)2] are not reflected in this document and will need to be taken account of by the Working Groups.
The document is divided in two parts: PART ONE: CONSOLIDATED TEXTS and PART TWO: CONSOLIDATED COMMENTARY. The status of the texts are indicated by square brackets footnotes, or in the Commentary.
Discussions are continuing on a range of other issues including regional economic integration organisations, conflicting requirements, and secondary investment boycotts, for which proposals have been put forward. These proposals are attached to this document but since they have not been fully debated they do not have the same status as the CONSOLIDATED TEXTS and COMMENTARY.
