The signed agreement applies to “all investments made before or after the effective date of the agreement, but does not apply to property rights or interests forcibly acquired by a party in its own territory prior to the entry into force of this agreement.” The content of the BIPPA is also largely standard. This is surprising, because the South African government proposed, in a government position paper at the ILO in 2009, major changes to the ILO to give them less preference for investors. The BIPPA will come into force 30 days after the last notification of the two governments that their respective constitutional conditions for entry into force are met. It will remain in force for ten years and will remain in force until the written denunciation by one of the two governments and 12 months after the expiry of such a written notification. To date, neither government has publicly stated that their constitutional conditions for entry into force have been met. As a result, GDPPA is currently unworkable. “Everyone now seems to understand that this is a positive agreement that offers investors a level of confidence that did not exist before. In the event of a dispute, there will be a whole series of mechanisms,” said Davies. The government will stick to the agreement and, at the same time, we do not want to increase our responsibility,” said Land Minister Herbert Murerwa. 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.
