    Future economy minister says Mercosur not a priority for Bolsonaro's Brazil

    Mercosur had become a “cognitive prison” impeding its members to unilaterally be involved in trade agreements with third countries or blocks, claimed Guedes.

    Mercosur is not a priority, and Argentina is not a priority for the new government of Brazil, the priority is to trade with all the world. The strong statement came from Paulo Guedes, signaled as the next Finance minister of president elect Jair Bolsonaro's cabinet and a crucial player in that team since the newly elected leader has admitted a limited knowledge of economics.
