Canada-Democratic Republic of Congo Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) negotiations
Canada and the Democratic Republic of Congo launched negotiations towards a Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) in 2015. To date one round of negotiation has taken place in February 2015.
A bilateral FIPA provides greater predictability and certainty for Canadian investors considering investment opportunities abroad. Canada’s objective in entering these negotiations is to secure a comprehensive, high-quality agreement which will protect investors through the establishment of a framework of legally binding rights and obligations. These modern treaties carefully balance the interests of all stakeholders in Canada.
