List of multilateral agreements expiring between 2007 and 1 September 2020 The Multilateral Investment Agreement (MIA) was a draft agreement negotiated between 1995 and 1998 under secrecy between members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).  It attempted to create a new body of universal investment laws that would give companies unconditional rights to participate in financial transactions around the world, regardless of national laws and civil rights. The project gave companies the right to sue governments when national health, labour or environmental laws threatened their interests. When his project was published in 1997, it was widely criticized by civil society groups and developing countries, in part because of the possibility that the agreement would make it more difficult to regulate foreign investors. After critics of the treaty waged an intense global campaign against the MAI, the host country, France, announced in October 1998 that it would not support the agreement, which effectively prevented it from being adopted because of the OECD`s consensual procedures. The United States is currently in the process of concluding a multilateral agreement with Canada and Mexico, one of the largest in the world. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) increased trade by 300 per cent between 1994 and 2009. Multilateral agreements have many advantages, including reducing tariffs and facilitating the import and export of goods for businesses. Multilateral agreements allow all signatories to be treated in the same way.

The status of the most favoured nation provides the best trading conditions a nation can obtain from a trading partner. Developing countries benefit the most from this trade status. The Regional Center of Sismologia para America del Sur (Ceresis) is a unique organization.
