    Brazil determined to advance Mercosur/EU trade talks in this week's meeting

    “Mercosur can't become an impediment for  Brazil to try other forms of insertion in other economic blocks”, underlined Monteiro

    A top Brazilian minister said that Mercosur must allow member countries to sign trade agreements with third parties and called for the end to the rule which prevents such initiative. Development, Industry and Trade minister Armando Monteiro Neto made the statement during a competitiveness seminar in Rio do Janeiro a couple of days ahead of a crucial meeting in Brussels between Mercosur representatives and the European Union to address an encompassing free trade agreement.
