The Context. The format of modern international businesses To make sense of the ‘modern, ambitious’ FTAs and IIAs (International Investment Agreements), it is necessary first to understand how TNCs are organised and being reorganised in the contemporary world of free movement of capital and ‘flexiblelabour markets. At the risk of generalisation, modern international businesses are characterised by some or all of these eight features: 11 xxxxx:// 12 Xx.xxxxxx.xx. (2017). Mexico - Trade - European Commission.

The Context. 2.1. Why is this FTA different from the rest? The Free Trade Agreement with the United States is different from other trade agreements for two reasons. First, it is a third generation agreement5. Despite their name, third generation bilateral free trade agreements have nothing to do with the trade, nor are they free or do they promote 'freedom’ of exchange in the broadest sense. Third generation free trade agreements, in line with the Chile- USA FTA, are about rules and, above all, the commercial interests of the United States. This agreement therefore regulates the 'rules of the game' which considerably limits the autonomy of public policy. The second reason this treaty is different is because we are dealing with the USA, the only super power, with perhaps the greatest military and economic power of any superpower at any time in history. This means that the commitments established within the FTA will be very difficult to alter, making the agreement a solid and credible commitment in the future. The Free Trade Agreement with the USA involves profound commitments in public policy, which further reduces the ability of the Chilean authorities to modify the current economic development strategy. Therefore, the decision by the current government to accept new restrictions upon its freedom of action in economic policy and international integration, constitute a bet in favor of the status quo, and a commitment with the neoliberal economic model. Therefore the FTA cannot be analyzed without considering the Chilean economic model nor the strategic interests of the United States in the region.

  • Context The Government of Canada consults with Aboriginal people for reasons of good governance, sound policy development and decision-making as well as for legal reasons. Canada has statutory, contractual and common law obligations to consult with Aboriginal groups. The Government of Canada will take a “Whole of Government” approach to Aboriginal consultation in the context of major resource projects to ensure that Aboriginal groups are sufficiently consulted, and where appropriate accommodated, when it contemplates actions that may adversely affect established or potential Aboriginal and treaty rights. These rights are recognized and affirmed in Section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982. This approach is mandated by both the Cabinet Directive on Improving the Performance of the Regulatory System for Major Resource Projects and the associated Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) (June, 2007). The Directive states that Parties will work together towards a coordinated approach for Aboriginal consultation that is integrated with the EA, to the extent possible. The approach for federal consultation of Aboriginal groups for major resource projects was created in accordance with Aboriginal Consultation and Accommodation: Updated Guidelines for Federal Officials to Fulfill the Duty to Consult (AANDC; March 2011).
