Project Purpose & Description

The networks aims to examine potential paths towards an economic complementarity linking between MERCOSUR economies and one of the countries identified as strategic by the Group of Producing Countries from the Southern Cone, with special reference to agroindustrial trade and discussing the possibilities of a closer rapprochement between these economies. Based on the importance of MERCOSUR in agroindustrial exports and Asia’s net importing markets, the objective is to analyze potential areas of work to improve the flow of investments in the agroindustrial sector, in order to promote trade and the development of Transpacific value chains.

Activity Description & Outcome

The activity will consist in the formation of a working network with specialists and agroindustrial entrepreneurs of Asia and MERCOSUR. The exchange of ideas and proposals will be reflected in a working document that intends to be the initial kick-off to generate a greater economic and political link between the region and the Asian country.
