The European Union and Mercosur, the South American trade bloc with member states Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay, have joined hands in an ambitious, balanced and comprehensive trade agreement. If it goes through, the deal will be the biggest ever for the EU, bringing together 800 million people. The pact combines a political and economic partnership. It will create great opportunities for sustainable growth on both sides, respecting environmental values, labor rights and preserving interests of EU consumers and sensitive sectors. This step will give European companies a head start into an exciting market with enormous potential.

With our new Latin American partner Talent Corporate Solutions with offices in Sao Paulo, Brazil, we are thrilled with this important step and look forward to working together even more.
