Dispute Settlement Systems in Recent Free Trade Agreements of Singapore: ANZSCEP, JSEPA, and ESFTA
Interest in free trade agreements has grown in recent years, and countries in Asia are pursuing such arrangements more actively than before. Singapore, in particular, has recently entered into a number of such agreements and is in negotiation to enter yet further ones. Each such agreement typically contains its own dispute settlement mechanism. This article examines in detail the dispute settlement systems contained in Singapore's free trade agreements already concluded with New Zealand, Japan and the countries of the European Free Trade Area which aim to deal with a wide range of disputes, including those relating to investment.
