Trade in Services Agreement (TISA

)
Financial Services Annex
WikiLeaks release: June 19, 2014
This is the secret draft of the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) Financial Services Annex, currently
under negotiation between Australia, Canada, Chile, Chinese Taipei (Taiwan), Colombia, Costa Rica,
Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Liechtenstein, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Panama,
Paraguay, Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, the United States, and the European Union,
including its 28 member states Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark,
Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg,
Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United
Kingdom. The Agreement is meant to liberalize trade in services amongst the world's largest services
providers, and it is being negotiated outside of the WTO framework. TISA members hold the largest
services markets worldwide, with a combined GDP of over two-thirds of the world economy. This text
was drafted just before the 6th round of TISA negotiations held from 28 April - 2 May in Geneva,
Switzerland. The next round of negotiations are set to be held 23-27 June in Geneva.
