The TISA (Trade in Services Agreement) is an initiative of several WTO Members with the aim of concluding a comprehensive agreement on trade in services. The aim of the agreement is to remove obstacles to trade in services and to ensure improved market access for services in the participating countries compared with the WTO's Agreement on Trade in Services. The negotiations took place from 2012 to 2016 under the joint chairmanship of the USA, Australia and the EU. A group of 23 WTO Members participated in the negotiations. Switzerland has actively participated in the negotiations since the beginning. The negotiations have been suspended since the end of 2016.
