Please mention: UNCTAD, International Investment Agreements Navigator, available in investmentpolicy.unctad.org/international-investment-agreements/ The primary responsibility of a WTO member is to conduct international trade in accordance with WTO agreements. The agreements cover, as noted above, trade in goods and services as well as intellectual property. The concept of a growth triangle was inspired by the success of other cooperation initiatives between the countries of Southeast Asia and Oceania. These sub-regional initiatives are generally concentrated in less developed countries, with less developed infrastructure and intra-regional links. This is why most of the projects planned and approved by the initiatives mainly concern infrastructure projects, trade, transportation facilities and investment promotion and facilitation. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, WTO membership marks a firm commitment to the development of a comprehensive and modern trade policy. The WTO accession process will require Timor to act more vigorously and effectively to meet its stated obligations to create a comprehensive legal, regulatory and structural environment for trade, in accordance with recognized international standards. Each of the WTO-managed agreements contains a comprehensive set of rules and commitments on how international trade can be achieved in each sector, in the types of goods and services, and even in individual groups and services that must be respected by all Member States. These include, for example, binding obligations to reduce tariffs to a certain level for a certain period of time (or to eliminate them altogether); obligation to limit domestic support measures (for example. (B) subsidies) for certain activities where they may distort international trade; and the standards that traded goods or services must meet in order to be negotiated fairly and securely, among others.
The Timor-Leste-Indonesia-Australia Growth Triangle (TIA-GT) is a joint initiative of the East Asian, northern Australian and Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste regions. This initiative aims to promote and promote economic growth through integrated economic development in the region where these nations live.  The Growth Triangle was created in 2012 following a meeting between former Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and former Timor-Leste Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao.  The initiative aims to support economic, social and cultural development mainly through investment, the development of manufacturing, the improvement of human capital and the strengthening of cooperation between the three countries concerned. The initiative also aimed to accelerate and achieve Timor-Leste`s membership in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), such as improving the country`s economic prosperity and stability.  The growth triangle is often misinterpreted as a free trade area; Although there are specific elements of free trade agreements between Indonesia and Australia, the conditions of the tripartite growth initiative are not directly related to these free trade agreements and the objectives of the growth triangle do not specifically cover free trade between the three nations.
