[8] The degree of economic integration that results from this depends on the specific nature of the trade pacts and policies of the trading bloc: the purpose of this dictionary was to establish a broad list of terms often used in trade negotiations, and in particular in the context of the United States Free Trade Area (EAFTA), in order to provide an information tool to the general public. The dictionary is presented in the four official languages of the FTAA: English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. The compilation does not attempt to represent the entire universe of terms used and does not seek to prejudge or influence in any way the definitions or approaches currently proposed by a country in trade negotiations. Indeed, many of the definitions contained in the draft SAA agreement, which are still the subject of difficult debates, have been excluded from this dictionary.
