Free trade agreements should stimulate trade between two or more countries. Strengthening international trade has the following six main advantages: an overview of the benefits of the trade agreement for Indian exporters is: a better solution than protectionism is to include rules in trade agreements that protect against disadvantage. 2. Access to new markets – Trade with MERCOSUR grew sharply after the free trade agreement. Free trade agreements facilitate and facilitate access for exporters and importers from partner countries. For example, after the signing of India – ASEAN-FTA in 2010, there was a sudden increase. It not only creates trade, as in the case of oil coal imports from Indonesia, but also leads to trade diversions from one country to another. 16 In Swaziland, textile and clothing factories are exclusively owned by Chinese investors. The number of installations was 30 at the time of data collection, all in the Matsapha industrial processing area. In Lesotho, there were 38, of which 25 were subsidiaries of Taswan companies. However, the survey showed that four factories are headquartered in Hong Kong and two companies are subsidiaries of South African companies.
Unlike Swaziland, there were four companies based in Lesotho, only one of which owned a Basotho (a citizen of that country). Singapore and Israel each had a subsidiary in Lesotho. In both countries, no joint ventures have been registered with the United States. For both countries, the markets for which these companies produced were dominated by the United States. In Lesotho, for example, there were 27 out of 38 plants that produced for the U.S. and Canadian markets, and only 6 for South Africa. Three companies have produced together for these three countries. Service companies were present in two types of peanuts.
From these schemes, the apparel and textile industry can be considered to have made significant investments by Chinese and Taiwanese entrepreneurs. Such investments are spread throughout the country in localities such as Nhlangano, Mankayane, Ntfongeni and Siteki among others. It is perhaps for this reason that representatives of Tawan in Swaziland have repeatedly stated that the De Tawan mission in Swaziland has strengthened a large number of Swazis in terms of capabilities and encouraged bilateral exchanges between the two countries. The weight of this industry in Swaziland and Lesotho is a testament to the frightening future that countries will face when AGOA expires in 2015.
