    It is very interesting to see how Brazilian diplomacy works. A bilateral reunion between Presidents of Brazil and Argentina takes place in Sao Paulo, at the Home of the most powerful industrial Federation of Industries in Latin America: FIESP - Federaçao das Industrias do Estado de Sao Paulo. A very pragmatic approach, since FIESP protested heavily on trade protectionist measures adopted by Argentina last month. So in diplomatic terms, the President of Brazil and the President of Argentina close ranks and downplay trade diferences...not in Brasilia - Planalto, but in Sao Paulo - Home of FIESP!
