GTI Workshop on FTAs/RTAs Information Sharing was proposed by the Ministry of Commerce of China (MOFCOM) as a project and approved by the 18th ConsultativeCommission (CC) Meeting on 22 June in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. MOFCOM, the China Association of International Trade (CAIT), and the Greater Tumen Initiative (GTI) Secretariat jointly held it on 25th October 2018 in Boao, Hainan, China.

GTI member countries have signed 47 FTAs and RTAs altogether with global trading partners, and these agreements strongly support the regional trade growth and economic development. However, GTI member countries are still at the initial stage of ushering into ‘FTAs/RTAs’ era.


The workshop discussed issues and shared insights on four themes :  : 1) Overview of Current Trends of Regional Economic Cooperation, 2) FTA/RTA Policies and Practices of Northeast Asian Countries, 3) Coverage, Content, and effects of FTAs/RTAs in the Northeast Asian Region, and 4) Outlook into the Future of FTAs/RTAs Development of Northeast Asian Region.
