What is BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY? What does BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY mean? BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY meaning - BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY definition - BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A bilateral investment treaty (BIT) is an agreement establishing the terms and conditions for private investment by nationals and companies of one state in another state. This type of investment is called foreign direct investment (FDI). BITs are established through trade pacts. A nineteenth-century forerunner of the BIT is the friendship, commerce, and navigation treaty (FCN). Most BITs grant investments made by an investor of one Contracting State in the territory of the other a number of guarantees, which typically include fair and equitable treatment, protection from expropriation, free transfer of means and full protection and security. The distinctive feature of many BITs is that they allow for an alternative dispute resolution mechanism, whereby an investor whose rights under the BIT have been violated could have recourse to international arbitration, often under the auspices of the ICSID (International Center for the Settlement of Investment Disputes), rather than suing the host State in its own courts. This process is called investor-state dispute settlement. The world's first BIT was signed on November 25, 1959 between Pakistan and Germany. There are currently more than 2500 BITs in force, involving most countries in the world. Influential capital exporting states usually negotiate BITs on the basis of their own "model" texts (such as the Indian or U.S. model BIT). NGOs have spoken against the use of BITs, stating that they are mostly designed to protect the foreign investors and do not take into account obligations and standards to protect the environment, labour rights, social provisions or natural resources. Moreover, when such clauses are agreed upon the formulation is legally very open-ended and unpredictable.

The Bilateral Investment Treaty is represented as ensuring greater security for corporations - a way for them to guard against nationalization and other unpredictable legal changes. It would allow them to sue for compensation in an independent court of arbitration rather than through the potentially biased justice system of the country involved.

The dark side of investment agreements

Movements around the world have put the spotlight on bailouts and tax evasion that have enriched the 1% at the expense of the 99% but this is only part of the picture. This popular video animation exposes how international investment agreements are also at the heart of an international economic system that is enriching a small corporate elite at the public expense. This video shows how: •corporate lawsuits against governments have risen by almost 1200% since 1990 •Argentina's legal bill for fighting corporate lawsuits has come to US$ 912 million, equivalent to the annual average salary of 140,000 teachers or 75,000 public hospital doctors • corporate lawyers, based mainly in the UK and US, are earning around $800 dollars an hour encouraging corporations to sue governments

BOOK REVIEW BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY CLAIMS The Essentials By Khawar Qureshi QC ISBN: 978 0 85490 194 4 WILDY, SIMMONDS & HILL PUBLISHING Wildy’s Legal Handbook Series www.wildy.com A PRACTICAL SHORT STATEMENT ON THE ESSENTIALS OF BILATERAL INVESTMENT TREATY (BIT) CLAIMS An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers The author, Khawar Qureshi QC, begins this excellent short work with the following statement: “there has been a huge increase in Investment Treaty based arbitration claims against States in recent years”. To fill the gap, Qureshi has written this title in the Wildy’s Legal Handbook series. BIT disputes are continuing to expand rapidly as a high-profile area of international litigation so the appearance of the handbook now is most welcome. “Bilateral Investment Treaty Claims” is specifically for practitioners and State legal advisers who need to identify and understand the key elements which underpin BIT based claims by reference to the leading arbitral decisions from ICSID and UNCITRAL Investment Treaty Tribunals. Christoph Schreuer and Rudolf Dolzer, writing in the Foreword say that their significance is usually discussed in terms of the impact on investment streams and thus economic development. They go on to say that “a frequently overlooked aspect of BITs is their effect on international relations”. It is therefore to the international aspect that this book dwells. Diplomatic protection “by the investor’s State of nationality” (a convenient way of dealing with a jurisdiction issue) has been exercised because of often “ill-defined principles” and was therefore a frequent source of irritation and discord. However, with the creation of legal rules in a hitherto largely unregulated area, BITs have “depoliticized disputes and brought a measure of legal security”. Schreuer and Dolzer conclude that “in the presence of objective treaty standards supported by an effective investor-State dispute settlement mechanism, the host state and the investor’s home State are less likely to be drawn into investment disputes.” They also comment that the handbook is a “most useful manual for practitioners and students alike. It offers a practice-oriented review of the most important features of BITs and their application by tribunals”. Hopefully, many readers will be familiar with BITs so the initial four chapters of the work give a useful background to BITs and their key features plus a checklist for practitioners contemplating or involved in a claim under a BIT. The penultimate chapter describes additional considerations, citing leading case law dealing with the scope for preliminary measures in BIT cases, abuse of process and illegality and there are two excellent and detailed annexes. The author has generously donated all royalties to the Bar Benevolent Fund. It is a most useful new manual from Wildy for both students and practitioners alike. What we particularly liked was the “practice-orientated overview” of the most important features of BITs and their application by tribunals to give us a refreshing insight into this developing area of international law. The current law is as stated at January 2016

July 2 (Bloomberg) -- Colombia's Trade Minister Luis Guillermo Plata talks with Bloomberg's Susan Li from Tokyo about negotiations with Japan for a bilateral investment treaty.

In this video, Hussein Haeri a partner at Withers, discusses the options available to protect your international investments. Until relatively recently, the means for you to protect your investments from political risk of state interference were very limited. But there is now another means of political risk protection which will be far more effective in many cases, which are investment treaties. These treaties give foreign investors rights of protection from the states in which they invest and in this video, Hussein discusses the merits and whether investment treaty protection is right for you.

China, U.S.  to Promote Negotiations on Bilateral Investment Treaty
 
01:54
China and the United States have agreed to promote negotiations on a bilateral investment treaty, said Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Beijing on Monday when meeting with U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew. Li said a good China-U.S. relationship is vital to both countries. China attaches great importance to the bilateral relationship and cooperation with the United States in fields of economy and trade. China became the largest trade partner of the United States for the first time last year. Premier Li said China is willing to work together with the Untied States to have closer exchanges and consultations in the future and to promote the signing of a high-level bilateral investment treaty. Li stressed that China's economy is undergoing a transformation period, in which the traditional and new economic driving forces are changing. He said with more positive fiscal policies, China's economy is expected to have greater strength. China will make more efforts to push forward structural reforms, especially the reforms on the supply side, to better stimulate the market's vitality and social creativity. When talking about the exchange rate of Chinese currency, Li stressed that China will continue to pursue the managed floating rate regime based on market demand and supply, and with reference to a basket of currencies. Li spoke highly of the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting held last week in Shanghai. He said major world economies including China and the Untied States should strengthen coordination on macro-economic policies, release more stability signals to boost market confidence and work together to promote a strong, sustainable and balanced growth of global economy. Jacob Lew said the positive signals the Chinese government has sent out over Renminbi exchange rate and economic restructuring are beneficial to boost the international community's confidence. He said the United States would like to stress exchanges with China, to open up a new round of US-China Strategic Economic Dialogue and to promote negotiations on a bilateral investment treaty.
