APEC has been conducting various activities to help enhance the ability of APEC member economies to negotiate high-quality and comprehensive free trade and regional trade agreements (FTAs/RTAs) in part by helping them understand these agreements better, and thereby contributing to the eventual realization of the FTAAP.

The links below serve as points of access to the suite of work conducted by the CTI on RTAs and FTAs. These include:

  1. Materials and summary records of trade policy dialogues on RTAs/FTAs conducted under the "Information sharing Mechanism on FTAs/RTAs"
  2. Materials and summary records of capacity building workshops/seminars/training courses conducted under the "Capacity Building Needs Initiative" (CBNI)
  3. A database of intra-APEC RTAs/FTAs, which makes it easy to compare the different agreements
