Je me réjouis vivement de l’accord politique dégagé en faveur d’un accord commercial ambitieux et global entre le Mercosur et l’UE. Dans un contexte d’intensification du protectionnisme dans les échanges, cet accord commercial constitue un signal positif fort en faveur du multilatéralisme et d’un système ouvert, fondé sur des règles et sur le libre-échange entre l’UE et ses partenaires.

The Latin America Follow up Committee of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) held a Hearing on the EU-Mercosur Association Agreement: The views of organized civil society on 13 of November 2019.

The main purpose of the debate was to:

  • Assess the opportunities and challenges ahead of the implementation of the Agreement;
  • Evaluate compromises and possible impacts of the Trade and Sustainable Development Chapter of the Agreement;
  • Explore how the civil society and consultative structures should monitor the impact of the Association Agreement in terms of improving human rights and labour, social and environmental rights as well as a strict compliance with international conventions or agreements the parties have committed to.
