Brazil and Mexico announced the renewal of vehicle quotas for four years, delaying the implementation of a free-trade agreement between the two countries. Under the new agreement, Brazil and Mexico will permit $1.56 billion of duty-free vehicle imports for the first year of the agreement. That amount will rise 3% each year until the agreement expires, in 2019, when they’ll return to a free-trade regime. Read full article

    Does TDC still export cars?

    I thought they were all on car lots awaiting auto parts from Brazil that TMBOA would not let in because they don't have the U$D to pay for them.

    TDC and Brazil, two rotten grapes still clinging to the vine despite all the shaking.

    I thought that the United States had abolished slavery. In full twenty-first century the United States keeps 120 million enslaved people.

    It is very difficult to compete with products that use slave labor.

    Poor Mexico!

    @ 3 Brasso

    I know I am likely to regret this but here goes:
    “With a population of 119,713,203 as of 2014, Mexico is the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world”

    How then are there 120M slaves in Mexico when the entire population, including men, women, children and old gits who no longer work is LESS than 120M?

    Bullcrapping as usual, eh Brasso?

    Morte de Lula em 2015!

    I just spent 3 months on Mexico.

    Didn't see any slaves at all.

    But then Mexico is sh!tting all over Brazil these days.

    “That amount will rise 3% each year until the agreement expires, in 2019, when they’ll return to a free-trade regime.”

    How would you know if you haven't been to Brazil?

    Talking out of your ass as usual. Drunk, dumb, and racist.

    to #8 pagina boi comes out of hiding with a new name. Still claiming to be from Mendoza Pagina Boi? I saw you posts under the beef article. What would you know about American beef aside from when an American tourist rents your head for 15 minutes?

    And from Mendoza:

    “Alberto Carleti, president of the Chamber of Commerce, Agriculture and Industry of Tunuyan and vice president of the EMF, said that the situation of the cherry sector in Mendoza was worse than that of the grape and wine sector. He also stated that even though the sector was working proactively ”there was no support or response from the government to their proposals, which has resulted in the decrease of activity in the province.“

    According to Carleti, the problem is that the productive sector has been completely neglected and outdated. ”Moreover, I would say it is in the process of becoming extinct,“ he said.”

    “The annual celebration in Mendoza marking the beginning of the wine harvest season led to heated words between the federal government and wine producers, who claimed the sector is going through a steep crisis that has led to many producers to halt production.”

    Tobi the amazing pagina boi, you're going to need to rent more than just your head.

    9. The Province of Mendoza is the largest holder of cheap Malbec in the world. There's nobody else who wants it.

    I wonder why the Brazilian Central Bank is not supporting the currency. Its at 3.22/1 today and falling.
