Mercosur & the EU – What brings the future?
In June 2019, a trade agreement with the Mercosur countries (Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, and Uruguay) was reached. Since then, news about the high use of pesticides, the danger for food safety and the increasing environmental impact of extensive agriculture in the regions have been accumulating. Paris in particular has increased the pressure, officially due to environmental concerns.
At the same time, the Portuguese Presidency is pursuing the goal of moving the agreement forward. What could we expect by the end of the Presidency? What does the delay mean for the general relationship with the trade bloc, and is the agreement compatible with the fight against climate change? And most importantly, could the Brussels effect lead to positive change (e.g. environmental protection in production) in the South American countries?

Summer is coming – Where are you going?
After a year of global pandemic, travel restrictions and social distancing, this year we have again the opportunity to cross EU borders without big hurdles and experience the diversity of our Union.
Will you take the opportunity to catch up on all the trips you couldn’t make in the last months, or will you spend the summer relaxing at home?
Join us for a laid-back Tuesday evening talk – and see what everyone else is planning.
For new members, this is an excellent opportunity to connect with the MeetEU team.
