Orgalime answer to the European Commission public consultation on the EU-Mercosur trade agreement

Published: 10 October 2016

Policies & Issues: Trade

Orgalime welcomes the new momentum in the EU-Mercosur free trade agreement negotiations. The adoption of a free trade agreement with Mercosur and the creation of a more integrated economic area within Mercosur would be extremely beneficial for our industries. The existing non-tariff and tariff barriers to trade, which represent a major trade-restricting hurdle, must be overcome thanks to the Free Trade Agreement. A stable and uniform framework within the Mercosur countries, including on customs and tax legislation, would be highly welcomed.
