“Our aim is to provide a platform for coherent consultations and actions by ministers and for serious cooperation with civil society. Above all, we are committed to making UNCTAD 15 an inclusive and unforgettable event that offers tremendous opportunities for creativity and entrepreneurship to the people of Barbados,” said Mr. Mottley. The New Delhi Conference, held in February and March 1968, was a forum for developing countries to agree on the fundamental principles of their development policy. The New Delhi conference was an opportunity to finally approve the plans. The Conference provided an important impetus for convincing the North to follow unctad i resolutions and establish generalized preferences. The target for private and official flows to the least developed countries had been raised to 1 per cent of the GNP of the North, but the developed countries had not made a commitment to achieve that target by a given date. This has proven to be an ongoing point of discussion at UNCTAD conferences. “The Government of Barbados is committed to providing a conference that allows for the universal participation of UNCTAD`s 195 member countries, while fully protecting the health and safety of participants and local people in Barbados,” Prime Minister Mia Mottley said at the signing ceremony, as the event was postponed from 18 to 23 October due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. At no recent time have these two words, trade and development, seemed more meaningful than they are today, Mottley said. The possibilities offered by product agreements are rather limited, since the technical and economic characteristics of many products and the nature of trade with them preclude the judicious application of international product agreements. In her statement at the signing ceremony, the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, said that this was the first time that my government has signed an agreement with another international or bilateral party without the signatories actually meeting in the same room in the same country! International investment agreements (IIAs) are divided into two types: (1) bilateral investment agreements and (2) investment agreements. A bilateral investment agreement (BIT) is an agreement between two countries on the promotion and protection of investments made by investors of the countries concerned in the territory of the other country.
The vast majority of AIIs are BITs. The category of contracts with investment rules (TIPs) includes different types of investment agreements that are not NTBs. Three main types of TP can be distinguished: 1. comprehensive economic contracts that contain obligations that are usually found in the ILO (e.g. a free trade agreement with an investment chapter); (2) contracts with limited investment provisions (e.g. B only those relating to the creation of investments or the free transfer of investment funds); and (3) contracts that contain only “framework clauses”, such as. B those relating to cooperation in the field of investment and/or a mandate for future negotiations on investment issues. In addition to AIIs, there is also an open category of investment-related instruments (IRIs). It includes several binding and non-binding instruments, such as model agreements and drafts, multilateral conventions on dispute settlement and arbitration rules, documents adopted by international organizations and others.
