I think that in international standard meant to be used by many whose first
language is not English, two similar sounding words ("partner"/"party")
should not be used for two similar concepts (both partners and parties are
participants in markets).

Can anyone propose an alternative word for "partner", assuming the above
defintions are correct, and the above comments are correct?
