European officials said this week that significant obstacles remain to a long-delayed trade deal between the European Union and Mercosur, even as South American officials expressed optimism a deal would be finalized soon. Read full article
Typical EU. Constantly blocking Mercosur deals, but when the shoes on the other foot it's suddenly 'unfair'.
I'm not a fan of Mercosur either, but the EU can't have it's cake and eat it. Both sides need to compromise.
Never mind, Mercosur, it'll be a lot easier negotiating trade deals with the UK than with the EU.
I wrote to you before about trade with Europe and how difficult it can be. For your own good search out small regional groups like the Wallons of Belgium that can block your deal not just Brussels and all the other countries 27 or 28 of them. Also when you deal with North America search hard for North of the USA border in Canada. Chile has figured that out and they ship a large amount of fresh produce of all kinds and wine to Canada in our Winter season, the opposite of yours. We always search for products that are not from the USA for we are not always on good terms with them and we get some from South Africa. Now with a free trade deal with parts of South East Asia, Chile and Peru we will be looking more there. Try to work deals with companies in Canada and with South East Asia 500 million people for they are just on the other side of the Pacific Ocean if you want to go in that direction. Wish you well !!!!
