EU-Mercosur Joint Press Statement

The EU and Mercosur are engaged in constructive discussions with a view to finalising the pending issues within the Association Agreement.

Considerable progress has been made in the past months. Negotiations continue with the ambition to conclude the process and reach an Agreement that is mutually beneficial for both regions and which responds to the demands and aspirations of their respective societies.

Based on the progress made so far in the negotiations, both parties hope to promptly achieve an agreement which corresponds to the strategic nature of the ties binding both parties and the crucial contribution they can offer to address the global challenges in areas such as sustainable development, reduction of inequality and multilateralism.
