- "How many times must I remind you of the Commerce Treaty of 1647? The Trade Federation is neutral."
- ―Lott Dod
The Commerce Treaty of 1647 was a legal covenant that assured the neutrality of the Trade Federation, which controlled most of the interstellar shipping passing through the galaxy's Rim territories. During the Clone Wars, it was often invoked by Senator Lott Dod of the Trade Federation to counter accusations that it was in league with the Confederacy of Independent Systems because they did business with them.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Commerce Treaty of 1647 was first mentioned in "Sphere of Influence," the fourth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' third season, which originally aired on October 1, 2010.
