|Quoting ME AVN FAN (Reply 2):|
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.
|Quoting Luisde8cd (Thread starter):|
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.
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.
