How the EU-Mercosur Agreement would help
Vaisala hopes that the EU-Mercosur Agreement can help to standardise practices of doing business with Brazil – the company’s biggest market in Latin America – making administrative procedures easier and cheaper.
With the agreement in place, Vaisala's products could arrive to market at lower cost, giving Brazil access to more up-to-date technology and improving the efficiency and safety of operations there.
The EU-Mercosur agreement would be a key initiative that could certainly support our business growth in Brazil. By simplifying trade barriers, streamlining procurement procedures, and standardising product approvals, it would clearly make us more competitive in Brazil. Furthermore, it will benefit both sides, as we could grow our investments in Brazil, and Brazil would have access to more goods and new technologies, which can support their growth and development as well.
