Trade in Services Agreement
This is the secret February 2015 draft of the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) Annex on Movement of Natural Persons, including negotiating positions. TiSA is currently under negotiation between the United States, the European Union and 23 other countries. The Agreement creates an international legal regime which aims to deregulate and privatize the supply of services - which account for the majority of the economy across TiSA countries. The draft Annex aims to harmonize limitations on the ability of national governments to restrict the ingress, movement or egress within their territory of employees, contractors or agents of services companies. This text dates from the 11th round of TiSA negotiations held 9-13 February 2015 in Geneva, Switzerland.
