Explanation of the issue

Under the standards of non-discriminatory treatment of investors, a state Party to the agreement commits itself to treat foreign investors from the other Party in the same way in which it treats its own investors (national treatment), as well in the same way in which it treats investors from other countries (most-favoured nation treatment). This ensures a level playing field between foreign investors and local investors or investors from other countries.

So far, so good. Now for the nonsequitur
For instance, if a certain chemical substance were to be proven to be toxic to health, and the state took a decision that it should be prohibited, the state should not impose this prohibition only on foreign companies, while allowing domestic ones to continue to produce and sell that substance.
Hoe to illustrate an explanation with an example having nothing whatsoever to do with the issue.

And I'm just on page 4...

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
