The fourth EU Implementation Report (other languages), published in November 2020 and preceded by the preface by DG Commerce Director-General Sabine Weyand (other languages), provides an overview of the results achieved in 2019 and the remarkable work for the EU`s 36 main preferential trade agreements. The accompanying staff working document provides detailed information in accordance with the trade agreement and trading partners. A customs union (UC) is a free trade agreement in which members apply a common external tariff plan (ETC) to imports of non-members. Given the recent proliferation of bilateral TTPs and the emergence of mega-PTAs (broad regional trade agreements such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) or the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a global trading system managed exclusively under the WTO now seems unrealistic and the interactions between trade systems must be taken into account. The increasing complexity of the international trading system resulting from the proliferation of EPZs should be taken into account when considering the choice of countries or regions used by countries or regions to promote their trade relations and environmental agendas.  ATPs have grown rapidly; In the 1990s, there were just over 100 PTAs. In 2014, there were more than 700.  There were also two regional trade agreements, the South Asia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA, 2004) and the India-India Association of Southeast Asian Nations Agreement (ASEAN, 2010). An EPI allows countries to trade with a small number of goods, making the volume minimal.
An economic union is a common market on which Member States coordinate macroeconomic and exchange rate policies. Switzerland- Industrial Products (01.01.1973) Free Trade Agreement, JO L 199 of 19.12.1973 Agricultural Trade Agreement (OJ L 300, 31.12.1972, p. 189) JO L 114, 30.4.2002, p. 132. Outside Asia, free trade agreements have been concluded with Chile (2006) and MERCOSUR (2004). F. A number of PTOTs (New Caledonia; French Polynesia; Saint-Pierre and Miquelon) have notified their tariffs under Article 45 of the Overseas Association (ADO) decision and have informed the Commission that if preferential treatment is granted for exports of EU products, they comply with the same requirements as those provided in the OAD, including EUR.1 goods movement certificates; In this case, mutatis mutandis. Other PTAs can be attributed to political predictors. Countries under democratic rule are more likely to participate in PTAs than autocracy. Autocratic leaders are not elected and have therefore not threatened their power by disgruntled citizens. Democratic leaders are encouraged to satisfy their constituents and PTAs can help drive down the price of consumer goods.
Support for ATPs also allows democratic leaders to signal to voters that they are committed to a policy that improves their well-being. Countries are also more likely to join ATPs if competing countries have already done so.  This theme shows which goods are taxable in countries at this preferential rate. Trans-Pacific Partnership (TTP), signed by Member States but not yet ratified, and transatlantic trade and investment partnership (TTIP), currently under negotiation. Preferential trade agreements are concluded between countries to promote international trade and provide advantageous access to partner countries. These preferential regimes allow foreign customers to pay a tariff of less or none on the import of the products.
