    Yes, another unilateral agreement 'running a coach and horses' (joke) through Mercosur.

    How much better to create a 'global' bloc-to-bloc trading environment - then all parties in many countries wouldn´t have to negotiate bilaterally on each individual widget.

    (And I really *do* try to look out for 'us' in South America)

    “And I really *do* try to look out for 'us' in South America”

    You can understand how confusing that is to me, right?

    You're looking out for British companies doing business in Argentina, is that correct?

    “Other companies that have presented proposals include Hyundai, Kia and Ditecar which represents Volvo, Jaguar and Land Rover.”

    Better hope neither Jaguar nor Land Rover have any ties with the hydrocarbons exploration, you never know.

    Keep up to speed, Martin.. .

    Jagauar Land Rover group have been American companies for some time (USA: Ford).
    More recently they became Indian companies - part of the Tata empire.
    Like all multi-national comanies they produce components globally and assemble in many countries.
    Tata will be producing these brands in China soon, so you will be able to buy an old British brand, ex-American, Indian car, made in China and imported into Argentina.
    It may be outside your price range because these are luxury vehicles.

    You're big on assumptions and speculation Geoff, that's what I'm starting to notice.

    Chill out, Martin.
    All is factual information except the terminal tease.

    BTW Can you really afford a Land Rover?

    No, but I like the Mitsubishi Montero myself, or it might be 'Shogun' in the UK, I don't know.

    Can you?

    What is this balance of import export / reciprocality that Peugeot & Alfa have agreed to?

    Have they agreed to buy
    x-tons of soya or
    y-tons of squid 0r even
    some cows on the hoof?

    What Argentinian products do these two car companies need?
