Plurilateral Agreement

(redirected from Plurilateral)

Plurilateral Agreement

A treaty between more than two, but not very many, countries. There is no set number that differentiates a plurilateral agreement from a multilateral agreement, though a plurilateral agreement has fewer parties. For instance, the World Trade Organization considers agreements between more than two members to be plurilateral, while agreements between all WTO members are multilateral.
