Establishing economic zones
Implementation: The Trade Negotiations Group of Developing Countries of Asia and the Pacific (TNG) was set up Nov 1971, Bangkok, within the framework of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP / CESAP / CESPAP). Subsequent negotiations resulted in the signing, in 1975, of the [Bangkok Agreement] on economic cooperation, and the entry into force, in 1976, of [Asian Free Trade Zone]. This completed the main role of TNG which subsequently has ceased to exist. Its activities have been taken over by the [First Agreement on Trade Negotiations among Developing Member Countries of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific] ([Bangkok Agreement]).
