The objective of Chapter 4 is to improve the legal environment for investors in EFTA countries and Indonesia who invest in the other country`s markets. This objective is achieved by granting non-discriminatory settlement rights (“commercial presence”) in sectors not covered by the trade in services chapter and listed in Appendix XVI. In some of these economic zones, the contracting parties have included reservations on domestic treatment on the basis of restrictions in their national legislation. The chapter is subject to periodic review to examine the possibility of changes in the parties` commitments. Here is a list of the free trade agreements that include the United States. In parentheses, the abbreviation, if any, membership, unless indicated in advance, and the date of entry into force. The United States has begun to negotiate bilateral and multilateral free trade agreements with the following countries and blocs: the intellectual property protection provisions (Chapter 5, Appendix XVII and the Patent Protocol) include, among other things, trademarks, copyrights, patents, undisclosed information, industrial design and geographical indications, and contain provisions relating to respect for intellectual property rights and cooperation between parties. These provisions are based on the WTO agreement on trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights (TRIPS) and provide for a high level of protection, taking into account the principles of the most favoured nation and national treatment. For eFTA-Indonesia trade statistics, see EFTA Trade Statistics Tool Chapter 3 closely follows the approach of the WTO General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS). It covers trade in all service sectors under the four types of supply.
Separate schedules relating to the trafficking of individuals providing services (Annex IX), the recognition of the qualifications of service providers (Annex X), the recognition of patents and the training of seafarers on swiss-registered vessels (Annex XI), telecommunications services (Annex XIII), financial services (Annex XIV) and tourism and travel services (Annex XV) , complete the chapter with additional disciplines specific to these sectors.
