In an attempt to reduce barriers to international trade, public procurement agreements have evolved during the last three decades of the 20th-century at both global and regional levels. These agreements give rise to a number of complex, topical issues. Yet apart from studies on European Union procurement rules, there are few books on public procurement, particularly covering regional procurement agreements.

This study provides an assessment of these agreements, focusing on the problem of protectionism in government procurement, long recognized as a major barrier to international trade.;Procurement lawyers, experts and officials; international economic law professors; public international lawyers; and international organizations should all appreciate this guide to understanding international procurement agreements, including the new tendering rules they impose.

It also features coverage of all types of international public procurement regimes, multilateral, regional and bilateral.
