Really you don't need deals. Unilaterally dropping barriers to trade will do quite a bit by itself.
You can't unilaterally create a trade deal, and the terms for trading without a deal are pretty onerous. What you are proposing is an end to free trade areas and trading solely under WTO rules, which would be devastating to the economy.
