    WOOOHOOOO!!!!.................In your face Mercosur pussies!!!!!!!!!
    And the special prize must go to Peru... These guys are amazing, only some years ago they were knee deep in shit, fighting communist terrorists, a ruined economy, hyperinflation to name a few, but here they are. Standing tall and proud with one of the most open economies in Latin America, with a sky rocketing GDP, massive foreign investment, one of the lowest inflation rates and a solid currency and banking system. Me love u long time Peru!
    Hey even your “revolutionary” “golpista” prez has done a complete 180.
    The sky is the limit Peruanos, now go and show everyone of these protectionist pussies how it's done.

    Quite agree ChileanP. Humala has turned out to be quite the revelation. Skilfully played to the nationalists instinct to win the election, but pushed ahead with the successful economic policies.

    The man who dragged them out of the knee deep shit is now in a jail cell. Just goes to show, no good deed goes unpunished.

    How long will Ecuador resist common sense before ditching their Chavist puppet and joining the club.

    The Chile–Mexico Free Trade Agreement has been one of the most successful trade agreements between two latin american economies, why? because both countries have respected their agreement, both have abide by the governing rules they both voluntarily establish for their commercial disputes. Mexico has signed other trade agreements with Costa Rica and other countries in the region. My hope is that this initiative can expand in Latin America so that we can all travel and do business with each other without restrictions, protectionism and nationalism barriers.

    Viva the Pacific Alliance, I think I mentioned this type of treaty in another thread wndering if somehow Ecuador could throw off her Bolivarian chains and join a real go-ahead organization.
    Congratulations Peru, Chile, Colombia and Mexico. Just show us the way to do it, one day, when pigs can fly, we'll get rid of the peronist pestilence and join the real world.

    It should work well.
    Better than any alliance with Argentina, Bolivia and Venezuela would work.

    Argentina was the country that preented ALCA from happening, even Brazil as ready to sign on.

    Argentina will never sign free trade with the rest of the world. Not until the drop all their subsidies at least.

    @8 Is the idea of having friends an alien concept for you? You seem overly fascinated by the idea.

    What are these coutnries going to do with each other? Trade? Trade what? their economies do not compliment one another. Mexico scarecly produces anything anymore. These poor people are being duped by their plutocracts again, who keep fooling them over and over again. Who has the bad narcotics problems? The Pacific Alliance. This club of losers could learn something from Europe. They should join forces w/their neighbor MERCOSUR who are doing well economically.
