The Trade Federation has traditionally maintained a strict neutrality in its dealings with other governments and companies, provided that those companies act in an honorable and trustworthy manner. To that end the Trade Federation helped create the Treaty of Forsetti which laid the groundwork for the Galactic Concordiate whose the stated aims of the Concordiate include promoting mutual cooperation, economic interdependence, intergovernmental friendship, and collective defense in order to further peace and prosperity.
