SADC - United States Trade, Investment & development cooperation agreement

SACU and the United States of America (USA) signed a Trade, Investment and Development Cooperation Agreement (TIDCA) on 16 April 2008. It is a cooperation agreement aimed at promoting investment and expanding and diversifying trade between SACU and the USA.

The TIDCA emanates from the previous Free Trade Agreement (FTA) negotiations between SACU and the US, which were suspended in 2006 due to divergent views on the scope of the FTA. Thus, TIDCA is envisaged to be a building block for a future FTA.

The TIDCA establishes a forum for consultations, cooperation and possible agreements on customs and trade facilitation, technical barriers to trade, Sanitary and Phytosanitary measures, and trade and investment promotion.
