Article 5(1)

A Contracting Party shall not apply any trade-related investment measure that is inconsistent with the provisions of article III or XI of the GATT 1994; this shall be without prejudice to the Contracting Party’s rights and obligations under the WTO Agreement and Article 29.

The representatives’ agreement to Article 5 is not meant to imply any position on whether or to what extent the provisions of the “Agreement on Trade-Related Investment Measures” annexed to the Final Act of the Uruguay Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations are implicit in articles III and XI of the GATT.
