They do not have as much influence on economic growth as a multilateral agreement. How to define a multilateral agreement? Multilateral (or regional) agreements Multilateral trade agreements exist between three or more countries. These are the most difficult to transfer. They establish rules governing trade between several countries. The larger the number of participants, the more difficult the negotiations. They are also more complex because each country has its own needs and desires. Multilateral agreements characterize international trade unions such as the WTO, the EU, NAFTA, etc. Once concluded, multilateral agreements are very powerful. They cover a wider geographical area. This gives signatories a greater competitive advantage. All countries also give themselves the status of most favoured nation. They agree to treat each other in the same way. For example, the South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA) agreement.
