EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

INTRODUCTION

I. EXPLANATION OF THE ISSUE

II. STOCKTAKING AND ANALYSIS

III. ASSESSMENT AND POLICY OPTIONS



Description

The aim of this study is to enhance APEC member economies’ understanding of one selected Core element of international investment agreements (IIAs), namely Transparency.

The study conceptually examines Transparency as a core principle and assesses its role and impact in enhancing the overall investment climate, as defined by APEC member economies. In order to achieve these objectives, the study examines the way in which transparency issues have been addressed in recent IIAs and discusses the recent emergence of transparency issues in the context of investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS). In analysing these trends, this study assesses the development implications and policy options of the different transparency-related formulations used in IIAs and ISDS provisions.
