  • Ensuring FTAs recognise cooperatives’ vital development role: PwC
    flows Further controversy centres on dispute mechanisms which allow investors to sidestep domestic courts by taking cases directly to international arbitration Governments are being encouraged to address these concerns especially those relating to investment and FS within a number of super regional FTAs currently under negotiation 1 Given the scale of these super regional agreements they are likely to provide the model for future FTAs one of the most important of which will be the second phase of the Tripartite Free Trade Area TFTA in Africa 2 which is seen as a precursor to a future Africa wide FTA The review and modification of the FTA model is an opportunity to include a new set of provisions that specifically reflect the distinctive nature and contribution of cooperative financial institutions Since their origins in the 19th century credit unions and other cooperative financial institutions have played a key role in opening up credit deposit payment and other financial services to people who have had little or no access to mainstream banks and capital markets As an engine of development cooperatives could provide an especially important source of finance for the two thirds of small and medium sized enterprises SMEs in emerging markets that currently have no access to credit 3 Cooperative credit could also play an important role in enabling farmers to develop the more productive and sustainable agricultural techniques needed to feed fast growing populations and facilitate investment and growth in the economy as a whole The potential advantages of the cooperative model within communities with limited financial resources or FS development include the high level of responsiveness to local needs the recirculation of profits and the opportunity to build a strong local skills base We believe that FTAs should make special provisions that recognise the distinction between cooperatives and other financial institutions and seek to maximise the potential benefits of the cooperative model In this paper we look at the role of FTAs in promoting financial services and wider economic development the particular nature and contribution of cooperative financial institutions and how this can be promoted as part of future FTAs The paper forms part of our wider research into the changing landscape of financial services and the markets and communities it serves www pwc com projectblue If you would like to discuss any of the issues explored in this paper in more detail please speak with us or your usual PwC contact While FTAs have historically focused on removing and reducing tariffs the scope has broadened to include the elimination of technical barriers to trade labour and environmental issues increased regulatory cooperation and harmonisation of trade measures across borders The switch in focus to regulatory harmonisation and the removal of non tariff barriers reflects the fact that many governments are now reluctant to go any further in reducing tariffs especially in sensitive sectors such as agriculture As a matter of fact many countries still maintain restrictions on foreign participation in their FS sectors arguing that this is needed
