Canada China Trade Agreement Fipa

161 Including the Canadian FIPPA model, top score 8; all Of Canada`s IFOPs after 2001, including those with the Czech Republic (which came into force in 2012 and believe that all documents are public, but that, like China, FIPPA provides that the hearings are public if the respondent decides to do so), Jordan, Latvia, Peru, Romania, the Slovak Republic and Tanzania; and all of Canada`s post-2001 trade agreements, including trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and Peru.
