Abstract: Abstract Preferential trade areas (PTAs) are a prominent feature of the contemporary multilateral trading system with almost 400 PTAs having been implemented as of 2010. The depth of integration of these PTAs varies greatly with some 90 % involving free trade agreements (FTAs) and partial scope agreements while customs unions account for just 10 %.
