Capitanich praises bilateral trade deal with Brazil
Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich today praised an agreement reached over the weekend with Brazil to reinforce bilateral trade and the progress made in a “common agenda” that would likely lead to a free trade agreement between Mercosur bloc and the European Union.
In his daily press briefing at the Government House, Capitanich highlighted the results of a visit Economy Minister Axel Kicillof and himself made to Costa do Sauipe, in Brazil, which allowed them to work on a deal with the Brazilian automotive industry for spare parts production.
In Brazil, both officials held meetings with representatives of the World Bank which approved a strategic plan of financing, according to Capitanich.
