    Abstract

    This paper reviews the treatment of services in a sample of free trade agreements. Some of the questions motivating this review are: 1. The extent to which the agreements have a common structure and content, which will facilitate their amalgamation and the extension of their conditions to current non-members; 2. The extent to which the agreements go beyond the commitments made by their members in the GATS; 3. The likelihood that preferential agreements of the type studied here will have a significant effect on regional services trade.
