Ministers Fernando Pimentel (Development, Industry and Foreign Trade) and Antonio Patriota (Foreign Affairs) traveled to Mexico City to resume discussions on revision to the automotive agreement between the Mercosul and Mexico. The meeting was arranged in response to correspondence sent by the Mexican government on March 9, in which a personal meeting between authorities of both countries was proposed. On the Mexican side, Ministers Bruno Ferrari (Economy) and Patricia Espinosa (Foreign Affairs) will take part in the talks. Talks on reviewing Complementary Economic Agreement No. 55 (ACE-55) began in February, when Ferrari and Espinosa were visiting Brazil. The automotive agreement between Mexico and the Mercosul was signed in 2002. The document stipulates that vehicles manufactured in countries in the economic bloc or in Mexico can be commercialized without the incidence of import duty. The exemption is subject to rules on local content.
