Notice of Bilateral Investment Treaty Program Review

The Office of the United States Trade Representative and the Department of State, co-leads of the U.S. bilateral investment treaty (BIT) program, are soliciting written comments and will hold a public meeting on July 29, 2009, concerning the Administration's review of the U.S. model BIT. The review is intended to ensure that the model BIT is consistent with the public interest and the overall U.S. economic agenda. The key question is whether the current model text, last updated in 2004, achieves these objectives or whether there are changes that should be made.

For further information, please view the Federal Register notice announcing the public meeting.
