    Does anyone know what they mean by "permanent"? ("The FTA, by contrast, would be a binding and permanent treaty.") It can’t be rescinded? Thanks.


    I agree with your openion, I worked as an employee in his "MASHAL CHEMICALS" two years ago. He is very croock in cheating the employees. he has his own labor contaract, which is entirely differnt from the Bahrain’s labor rules and regulations. By signing these agreement he is unscruplesly sqeezing the employees. Meger wages and poor amnesties in his factory is really hazardes for the employees. He is not giving any compensation for the health risk which is taken by his employees in the form of working in dangerous environment, instead he is cheating the employees. A real hypocrat and now he is appraising the people about the family values and country’s industrial revlution, I really ashamed to read his utternces....

    Thanks and best regards

    An employee from Mashal Chemicals:

Don’t me amazed, the worker who is doing Job in a hazardes environemnt like chemical industry getting BD. 60/- per month. He is cheating people and accumultaing wealth. Do’t heed his words about Bahrain’s development.....

    Dear Sir,

    As per my opinion it is better for both countries if Fta sign with Bangladesh.


    CAFTA was passed and it passed by only two votes. For more information, visit It names the Democrats who voted for it. Also Republicans like Rep LaTourrette of Ohio changed their vote at the last minute.
    The site also tells about the opposition in Central America where two protestors were killed protesting CAFTA. See also http://www.aboutglobalization or search under Tapart News at which combines the search results of Google, Yahoo and MSN on the same pages for thousands of more references about the the great betrayal of workers everywhere and not only in the USA.

    Mi única duda es acerca de las fuentes que se utilizaron para determinar tanto los niveles de inversión como los de pobreza y desigualdad. Me la podrían resolver y enviarmela a mi mail.

    It is unfortunate that India and Pakistan are scurrying the globe in search of partners for FTAs, while failing to take any serious steps to make mutual economic and investment/trade cooperation a priority. Pakistan to this day has not extended to India the MFN treatment, which is a right of every member of the WTO. Both countries at the official level emphasise their competing capabilities in missile development and nuclear "deterrence" instead of using the resurgence of sentiments of peace and friendship at the level of people of the two countries to advance of the agenda of economic cooperation. India has concluded FTAs with Sri Lanka and Thailand and is on the way to concluding a much broader agreement with Singapore.

    The current US government is not concerned with the truth, they are bullies and have targeted Syria for the next victim. It makes no difference what Syria does, they will remain a target so the EU needs to just use their own intelligence and do what they want to do with no regard for permission from the US.


    Pienso que es muy triste que personas que ni siquiera se hayan tomado el tiempo para leer el tratado esten emitiendo criterios, basados en envidias, complejos y nacionalismos estupidos. Lo peor de todo es que lo que quieren es que el sistemas politico pierda legitimidad y convertirse en un Venezuela. Espero y le pido a Dios que los costarricenses no se dejen llevar por los comentarios populistas y por personas que tienen la ideologia en el lado izquierdo, pero la mano en el bolsillo derecho ya que viven como reyes, y predican y predican y lo que son es unos doble moral de primera. Abajo los sindicatos, y los Chavez.


    There is no doubt that the situation is improving comparing to the last decade, but still a lot of work needed in order to achieve a healthy and prosperous business environment. I think a alongside with the reforms of the banking systems there is an urgent need for reforms in the legal system and the jurisdiction practices which still incredibly very corrupted and in favour of people who have connections with those in the government or in the army. I believe the only remedy for this is the creation of an independent legal association formed by lawyers and advocates who can play a role of watch dog over the jurisdiction practices in the courts whether in civil or criminal matters, (how can a business man/woman have assurances that a legal dispute would have a fair trial without any external pressure from those who have power?).
    Another factor which I believe can contribute in creating a healthy business environment is through increasing the competency of the staff in the local governments and the creation of a system which can control and hold the decision makers accountable for their acts. As an example to illustrate my point: the practices in the local government in handling and processing tenders for local projects still in its traditional ways which is usually based on higher bribery not on the basis of competency and the ability of entrepreneurs. As a consequence the quality and standards of the infrastructures such as roads are really appalling (holes in the roads, bursting sewages, electricity and telephone cables hanging dangerously over the road users). How the values of assets can be maintained in such chaotic urban environment.
    Taking in accounts the urban chaos in most cities where street don’t have names and houses without numbers, I think there is an urgent need for more reforms in those areas which are prior than the reforms in the banking systems; can you imagine a bank chasing its debtors in those conditions?
