RULES OF ORIGIN

ARTICLE 1

The determination of origin of goods and the appropriate certification
and verification procedures will be defined and applied as established by

heading. To that end, the Parties will use the Nomenclature of the Harmonized
Commodity Description and Coding System, including the heading, sub-headings
and the corresponding numerical codes, the notes to the sections, chapters and sub-
headings, as well as the general rules of interpretation.

ARTICLE 3

The following shall be considered as originating in the Parties:

1. Wholly produced goods are:
(a) Goods from the mineral, plant or animal kingdoms

(including those from hunting, fishing), extracted, harvested
or gathered, born, bred or captured in the territories of the
Parties, or in their territorial waters or in their exclusive
economic zones;

(b) (i) Goods of the sea extracted beyond the territorial
waters of the Parties and their exclusive economic
zones by ships, wholly or partially owned by
nationals of the Parties, legally chartered, leased or
contracted under joint venture arrangements by
enterprises established in the territories of the Parties;

(ii) Goods of factory ships, wholly or partially owned by
nationals of the Parties, legally chartered, leased or
contracted under joint venture arrangements by
enterprises established in the territories of the Parties
produced from goods of the sea, extracted by ships in
accordance with the provisions in (i) above;

(iii) For the purposes of subparagraphs (i) and (ii) of this
paragraph, ships will be considered as partially owned
by nationals of the Parties where the level of

(f) Goods which meet the specific origin requirements

ARTICLE XII

SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES BETWEEN AN INVESTOR AND A
CONTRACTING PARTY

1. Any dispute between one Party and an investor of the other Party
concerning an Investment of the latter, in the territory of the former, shall, if
possible, be settled amicably. If such a dispute has not been settled amicably
within a period of three months from the date of written notification of the
claim, either Party may submit the dispute to the courts of that Party or to
national or international arbitration.

2. Where the dispute is referred to international arbitration, the investor
and the Party concerned in the dispute may agree to refer the dispute to an
international arbitrator or ad hoc arbitration tribunal to be appointed by a
special agreement or established under the Arbitration Rules of the United
Nations Commission on International Trade Law.

3. Neither Party shall give diplomatic protection or bring an
international claim, in respect of a dispute which one of its investors has
consented to submit to arbitration, unless the other Party which is party to the
dispute shall have failed to abide by and comply with the award rendered in
such dispute by the arbitral tribunal. Diplomatic protection, for the purposes
of this paragraph, shall not include informal diplomatic exchanges for the sole
purpose of facilitating a settlement of the dispute by the arbitral tribunal.

4. The awards of the arbitrator shall be definitive, compulsory and
without appeal for the Contracting Party and the investor.

ARTICLE XIII

SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES BETWEEN THE PARTIES

1. Disputes between the Parties concerning the interpretation or
application of this Agreement should, if possible, be settled through

months, it shall, upon the request of either Party, be submitted to an arbitral tribunal.

3. Such an arbitral tribunal shall be constituted for each individual case in
the following way. Within three months of the receipt of the request for
arbitration, each Party shall appoint one member of the tribunal. Those two
members shall select a national of a third State who, on approval by the two
Parties shall be appointed Chairman of the tribunal. The Chairman shall be
appointed within two months from the date of appointment of the other members.

4. If within the periods specified in paragraph (3) of this Article, the
necessary appointments have not been made, either Party may, in the absence
of any other agreement, invite the President of the International Court of
Justice to make any necessary appointments. If the President is a national of
either Party or if he is otherwise prevented from discharging the said function,
the Vice-President shall be invited to make the necessary appointments. If the
Vice-President is a national of either Party or if he too is prevented from
discharging the said function, the Member of the International Court of Justice
next in seniority who is not a national of either Party shall be invited to make
the necessary appointments.

5. The arbitral tribunal shall reach its decision by a majority of votes.
Such decisions shall be binding on both Parties. Each Party shall bear the cost
of its own member of the tribunal and of its representation in the arbitral
proceedings; the cost of the Chairman and the remaining costs shall be borne
in equal parts by the Parties. The tribunal may, however, in its decision, direct
that a higher proportion of costs be borne by one of the two Parties, and this
award shall be binding on both Parties. The tribunal shall determine its own
procedures.

ARTICLE XIV

CHOICE OF FORUM

In the case of disputes arising between the Parties, which constitute a
dispute under this Agreement and the existing bilateral agreements between
CARICOM Member States and Cuba, with regard to the interpretation and
application of this Agreement, the procedure established under the bilateral
agreements regarding dispute settlement between the parties shall prevail.

ARTICLE XV

SUBROGATION

If one Party or its agent (“the first Party”) makes a payment under an
indemnity against non-commercial risks given in respect of an Investment
in the territory of the other Party, (“the second Party”), the second Party
shall recognize—

(i) the assignment to the first Party by law or by legal

in pursuance of the rights and claims acquired shall be freely available to the
first Party for the purpose of meeting any expenditure incurred in the territory
of the Second Party.

APPLICATION OF OTHER RULES

If the provisions of law of either Party or obligations under
international law existing at present or established hereafter between the Parties
in addition to the present Agreement contain rules, whether general or specific,
entitling investments by investors of the other Party to treatment more
favourable than is provided for by the present Agreement, such rules shall to
the extent that they are more favourable prevail over the present Agreement.

ARTICLE XVII

GENERAL EXEMPTIONS

Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Agreement, a Party
shall not be prevented from taking prudential measures with respect to
financial services, including measures for the protection of investors,
depositors, policy holders or persons to whom a fiduciary duty is owed by the
enterprise providing financial services, or to ensure the integrity and stability
of its financial system. Where such measures do not conform with the
provisions of the Agreement, they shall not be used as a means of avoiding
the Party’s commitments or obligations under the Agreement.

2. This Agreement shall not preclude the application by either Party of
measures necessary for the protection of its own national security interest.

ARTICLE XVIII
