ABSTRACT
Reports on a possible trade alliance between the European Union (EU) and the South- American Common Market (Mercosur) that could outperform the US-proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). Concern among Mercosur leader Brazil that the FTAA would not generate nearly as much growth as the partnership with Europe; Protectionist policies in the US and the EU that limit exports of Mercosur goods; Expectation for the signing of the Rio de Janeiro Declaration. INSET: A powerful partnership.
