The four essential elements of a binding contract under English law are offer, acceptance, reflection and the intention to create legal relationships. If each of these elements is fulfilled, there is a binding contract by which the treaty enters into force, in whatever form (written or oral). Despite this flexibility for authors, trade agreements generally follow a typical structure that includes the following (although not necessarily in order): recitals can play a valuable role in helping third parties conclude or re-examine the contract in a timely manner to understand the intent of the original parties. The reality is that the commercial intent of a written contract does not always appear easily in the material provisions. The contracting parties may be surprised to find that their carefully crafted provisions, which became clear at the time of development, are indeed ill-equipped to deal with unforeseen problems that will arise after the treaty enters into force. The reason is that the treaty has probably been the subject of lengthy negotiations (as is often the case with complex trade agreements), with the final text being a compromise between opposing trade positions. The majority vote means a resolution adopted by the voting representatives during the session, which is generally no less than the passmark. To this end, excluding the votes of a failing joint venture. A traditional project would involve a recitation of reflection. Most commentators agree that this is no longer necessary now, and instead include the word: “That is why the parties agree in the following way.” In order to ensure the inclusion of key definitions in the legally binding contract, a better approach might be to include the text “as defined below” just before the term defined in the recitals and, therefore, to implicitly draw the reader`s attention to the section of the definition contained in the treaty arrangement. However, in practice, it is unlikely that a court will not take into account all references to terms defined in the recitals when interpreting the agreement.
