The IIA browser is constantly adapted by reviewing and commenting from UN member states. It is based mainly on information provided by governments on a voluntary basis. A contract is entered into a country`s IGE census after its formal conclusion; Contracts that have been negotiated but have not been signed are not counted. A contract is excluded from the IGE census as soon as its termination comes into force, whether or not it may continue to have legal effects on certain investments during its “survival” period (“sunset”). If the contract is replaced, only one of the contracts between the same parties is accounted for. Depending on the situation, the contract counted may be “old” if it remains in force until the newly concluded AI is ratified. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the content, UNCTAD assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions in this data. The information and texts contained in the database have a purely informative purpose and have no official or legal status. If there is any doubt about the contents of the database, it is recommended that you contact the relevant ministry or states concerned. Users are encouraged to report agreements, errors or omissions via the online contact form.

There are no preferential trade agreements between Venezuela and the EU. Trade relations between the EU and Venezuela are based on World Trade Organization (WTO) rules and tariffs. The climate of trade and investment in Venezuela remains a challenge for EU operators, particularly given the economic policies and controls put in place in recent years, such as currency and price controls, expropriation and other forms of state intervention in the economy. EU foreign investment has increased from 21.4 billion euros in 2013 to 12.9 billion euros in 2018.
