For a complete list of trade agreements analysed, see Table 1 (Annex). Generally speaking, trade diversion means that a free trade agreement would divert trade from more efficient suppliers outside the area to less efficient suppliers within territories. On the other hand, the creation of trade implies that a free trade agreement creates trade that might not otherwise have existed. In any case, the creation of businesses will improve the national well-being of a country.  The United States has signed bilateral trade agreements with 20 countries, including Israel, Jordan, Australia, Chile, Singapore, Bahrain, Morocco, Oman, Peru, Panama, and Colombia. Finally, we emphasize that the methodological framework used in this work can serve as a basis for examining other, more specific research questions related to ASAs. including the dependence on the effectiveness of such agreements in relation to their total volume or volume of trade concerned. Another interesting problem would be the existence of interferences between different SAAs, which directly or indirectly concern the same national economic sectors through SAAs and concern a relevant trading partner. Further in-depth studies in this direction are considered a relevant theme for future research. The Asia-Pacific region «is an important market for our businesses,» said Rob Mulligan, senior vice president of political and government affairs at the U.S. Council for International Affairs.
«We hope that [the U.S.] will take a different approach that will continue to open up these markets and ensure that U.S. companies will be able to compete with and access them. The multilateral approach, as we have been in general, has had advantages in that many countries have been able to be received at once. [A] Many companies benefit from the rules-based global trading system. This analysis is based on EORA`s Multiregional Input-Output Database (MRIO) [25, 26], which provides multi-regional input-output tables, which represent both national and international intermediate flows between 26 industrial sectors in 189 countries. In addition, the monetary values of goods entering each country`s final demand are included. It should be noted that, among the existing MRIO databases, EORA has the broadest (almost global) coverage of economies and industrial sectors, while other similar data sets may be more detailed, but they cover far fewer countries, making them less suitable for the purposes of this study. Compared to national input-output tables, MRIO tables generally have a rather approximate level of sectoral detail, but cover many countries, which is essential for studying the impact of SAAs on the networking of world trade. A free trade agreement (FTA) or treaty is a multinational international agreement aimed at creating a free trade area between cooperating states.. . .
