The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications from qualified entities to implement the Framework Agreement on the Implementation of Tuberculosis (TIFA) with the intention of concluding up to two cooperation agreements. Permission for this premium is not limited. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) is a legal agreement between many countries whose overall objective was to promote international trade by removing or removing trade barriers, such as tariffs or quotas. According to its preamble, its objective was to “substantially reduce tariffs and other trade barriers and eliminate mutually beneficial and reciprocal preferences.” Although the names of framework agreements may vary, B for example, the Trade, Investment and Development Agreement (TIDCA) with the South African Customs Union or the U.S.-Icelandic Forum, these agreements all serve as a forum for the United States and other governments to address and discuss issues of common interest, with the aim of improving cooperation and improving trade and investment opportunities. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); in Spanish: Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte, TLCAN; In French: North American Free Trade Agreement, ALNA) is an agreement signed by Canada, Mexico and the United States, which creates a trilateral trade bloc in North America. The agreement came into force on January 1, 1994 and replaced the 1988 Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement. THE NAFTA trade bloc is one of the largest trading blocs in the world, after gross domestic product. TIFA, a key component of USAID Global Accelerator to end TB and the journey to self-sufficiency, will develop and manage partnerships with local authorities and other local partners to implement locally generated solutions to improve TB services in USAID`s priority countries.
The overall objective of TIFA is to strengthen and maintain the ownership and responsibility of countries. TIFA is often seen as an important step towards free trade agreements. Ambassador Cella said: “This is an opportune time for our two countries to create an ITFA and develop our trade relations, as Fiji celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its independence last week. As a bridge builder, I look forward to working with the Department of Commerce and the U.S. Trade and Investment Representative through TIFA. »
