EU-Chile Advanced Framework Agreement

Disclaimer: In view of the Commission's transparency policy, the Commission is publishing the Trade and Investment pillar of the EU-Chile Advanced Framework Agreement following the political conclusion between the Parties, announced on 9 December 2022.

The modernisation of the existing EU-Chile Association Agreement foresees two parallel legal instruments:

  1. The Advanced Framework Agreement, that will include a) the Political and Cooperation pillar and b) the Trade and Investment pillar (inclusive of investment protection provisions); and
  1. An Interim Trade Agreement (iTA) covering trade and investment liberalisation. The iTA will expire when the Advanced Framework Agreement enters into force.

In view of this legal architecture, the Commission is therefore publishing: a) the text of the Interim Trade Agreement (iTA) in its entirety; and b) the texts of Chapter 10 “Investment”, Chapter 18 “Financial Services” and Chapter 20 “Capital Movements” of the Advanced Framework Agreement, which include investment protection provisions.

The texts are published for information purposes only and may undergo further modifications including as a result of the process of legal revision. However, in view of the growing public interest in the negotiations, the texts are published at this stage for information purposes. These texts are without prejudice to the final outcome of the agreement between the EU and Chile.

The texts will be final upon signature. The agreement will become binding on the Parties under international law only after completion by each Party of its internal legal procedures necessary for the entry into force of the Agreement (or its provisional application).
