Two months after breaking away from the Andean Community (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia), Venezuela is officially joining MERCOSUR.

It will be the first expansion of MERCOSUR since it was created in 1991. Current members are Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay and now Venezuela.

Tomorrow July 4th, the presidents of MERCOSUR will sign the Venezuelan ascension treaty here in Caracas.

It establishes a time frame of 4 years for Venezuela to lift all trade barriers for MERCOSUR goods, but it gives MERCOSUR 8 years to do the same with Venezuela. Pretty unfair if you ask me, considering that both Brazil and Argentina have much more stronger economies than Venezuela's.

Saludos desde Caracas,
Luis

Quoting Luisde8cd (Thread starter):
Venezuela is officially joining MERCOSUR.

What exactly is the reason ? Is the Economic Community of Argentina and Brazil (plus Uruguay/Paraguay) more attractive than the one of the by comparison relatively small countries Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru ? Wouldn't it make sense anyway if the 4 "Andean" countries joined Mercosur in order to create something on the same level as the E.U. and NAFTA ?

I believe that the main reasoning behind the break up of the Andean community is their Free Trade Agreements with the United States. Mercosur members don't not have any free trade agreeements with the US, I recall, but Uruguay has stated that it wants to have one.

I still have to get that into my head. It looks like Chavez is showing Venezuela as the rejected child of South America. He'd do ANYTHING for acceptance. This is one excellent clue. Perhaps, there are some things in the deal that we don't see, that will really benefit Venezuela from the entrance to Mercosur.

From what little I've seen of 'orrible 'ugo,the advantages will be "military":
the establishment of "trojan horses" in the "benefitting" nations.

There's no military benefit. Just oil, fuel, and more oil!

Argentina and Brazil have finally learned from Europe and North America and China and are now doing not what is morally right, but what is economically convenient.

That would be a too capitalistic of a reason. It is purely political.

Colombia and Mr. Uribe are not high on Mr. Chavez's list. Especially considering that amount of help Colombia receives from the USA, and the many aligned policies of Colombia with the United States.

The motivations are political first and foremost.

Cheers
