TREATY OF FRIENDSHIP, COMMERCE, AND NAVIGATION
between the Republic of Alduria and the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation


The Republic of Alduria and the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation (hereafter called “Parties” or “Party”), desirous of strengthening the bonds of peace and friendship traditionally existing between them and of encouraging closer economic and cultural relations between their peoples, and being cognizant of the contributions which may be made toward these ends by arrangements promoting mutually advantageous trade, encouraging mutually beneficial investments, and establishing mutual rights and privileges, have resolved to conclude a Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation, based in general upon the principles of national and unconditional most-favored-nation treatment reciprocally accorded:

ARTICLE I.
1. There shall be perpetual amity between the Republic of Alduria and its citizens on the one part, and the Bovic Empire of the Natopian Nation and its citizens on the other part.
2. Each Party shall always accord equitable treatment to the persons, property, enterprises and other interests of nationals and companies of the other Party.
3. Between the territories of the two Parties there shall be, in accordance with the provisions of the present Treaty, freedom of commerce and navigation.

ARTICLE II.
1. There shall be between all the territories of the Alduria and all the territories of Natopia a reciprocal freedom of commerce. The citizens of the two countries, respectively, shall have liberty, freely and securely, to come with their ships and cargoes to all places, ports and rivers in the territories of either, to which other foreigners, or the ships or cargoes of any other foreign nation or State, are, or may be, permitted to come; to enter into the same, and to remain and reside In any part thereof, respectively; to hire and occupy houses and warehouses, for the purposes of their residence and commerce; to trade in all kinds of produce, manufactures and merchandise of lawful commerce; and generally to enjoy, in all their business, the most complete protection and security, subject to the general laws and usages of the two countries respectively.
2. In like manner, the respective ships of war, and post-office or passenger packets of the two countries, shall have liberty, freely and securely, to come to all harbors, rivers, ports, and places to which other foreign ships of war and packets are, or may be, permitted to come; to enter into the same to anchor and remain there and refit, subject always to the laws and usages of the two countries respectively.

ARTICLE III.
1. Nationals of either Party shall be permitted to enter the territories of the other Party and to remain therein:
  • a. for the purpose of carrying on trade between the territories of the two Parties and engaging in related commercial activities;
    b. for the purpose of developing and directing the operations of an enterprise in which they have invested, or in which they are actively in the process of investing, a substantial amount of capital; and
    c. for other purposes subject to the laws relating to the entry and sojourn of aliens.
2. Each Party undertakes to make available the best facilities practicable for travel by tourists and other visitors with respect to their entry, sojourn and departure, and for the distribution of information for tourists.
3. Nationals of either Party, within the territories of the other Party, shall be permitted:
  • a. to travel therein freely, and to reside at places of their choice;
    b. to enjoy liberty of conscience;

    e. to communicate with other persons inside and outside such territories by mail, telegraph and other means open to general public use.
4. The provisions of the present Article shall be subject to the right of either Party to apply measures that are necessary to maintain public order and protect the public health, morals and safety.

2. Vessels of either Party shall have liberty, on equal terms with vessels of the other Party and on equal terms with vessels of any third country, to come with their cargoes to all ports, places and waters of such other Party open to foreign commerce and navigation. Such vessels and cargoes shall in all respects be accorded national treatment within the ports, places and waters of such other Party; but each Party may reserve exclusive rights and privileges to its own vessels with respect to the coasting trade and inland navigation.
3. Vessels of either Party shall be accorded national treatment with respect to the right to carry all cargo that may be carried by vessel to or from the territories of the other Party.
4. If a vessel of either Party runs aground or is wrecked on the coasts of the other Party, or if it is in distress and must put into a port of the other Party, the latter Party shall extend to the vessel as well as to the crew, the passengers, the personal property of crew and passengers, and to the cargo of the vessel, the same protection and assistance as would have been extended to a vessel under its own flag in like circumstances; and shall permit the vessel after repairs to proceed with its voyage upon conformity with the laws applicable alike to vessels under its own flag. Articles salvaged from the vessel shall be exempt from all customs duties unless they pass into internal consumption; but articles not entered for consumption may be subject to measures for the protection of the revenue pending their exit from the country.
5. The term "vessels", as used herein, means all types of vessels, whether privately owned or operated, or publicly owned or operated, except vessels of war.

ARTICLE V.
1. In all ports of either Party the masters of all vessels under the flag of the other Party, whose crews have ceased to be fully constituted on account of illness or for any other cause, shall be permitted to engage such persons as may be necessary for the continuation of the voyage.
2. Nationals of either Party may be sent to ports of the other Party to join national vessels, in care of consular officers, either individually or in groups based on proper papers issued in lieu of passports.
3. Likewise, nationals of either Party shall be permitted to travel through the territory of the other Party on their way to join vessels or to be repatriated based on proper papers used in lieu of passports.

ARTICLE V.
1. There shall be freedom of transit through the territories of each Party by the routes most convenient for international transit:

Mr. Speaker,

I move for a vote on this Treaty.

Also a quick FYI - with the Aldurian Parliament currently opening, it will take a little bit for them to ratify it, according to the Aldurian Ambassador. The Treaty is popular with all the political parties and is expected to pass easily.
