The First Bilateral Investment Treaties

Kenneth J. Vandevelde

Oxford University Press

The FCN treaty policy developed by the Roosevelt and Truman administrations was maintained by the Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson administrations, all of which continued to conclude FCN treaties. This chapter describes the treaty negotiations that occurred in the post-Truman years, in which the United States concluded treaties with Germany, Haiti (which never entered into force), Iran, Nicaragua, the Netherlands, Korea, Muscat and Oman, Pakistan, France, Belgium, Vietnam, Luxembourg, Togo, and Thailand. The United States, however, had difficulty finding new treaty partners beyond those countries initially approached by the Truman administration. FCN treaty negotiations continued during the Nixon and Ford administrations, but no treaties were signed after 1966.

Keywords:   Germany, Iran, Nicaragua, Netherlands, Korea, Thailand, Pakistan, France, Belgium, Vietnam
