Trade before Politics Blasts Brazil Farmers Leader

Tuesday, 6 August, 2013

Ramalho da Silva Brazilian leader of the Brazilian Rural Society (farmers lobby) attacked Mercosur Presidents at a meeting in Buenos Airies for failing to support his constituents due to continual failure to build a trade block for global negotiations. Mercosur is a political and economic series of agreements signed by Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay (who is looking to leave already), Uruguay, Venezuela and Bolivia.Commenting da Silva said:“That is why the EU insists in reaching an agreement block to block with Mercosur to make negotiations basically safer, more wide ranging, stable and permanent, and this is limited because of the short-sighted view of our Mercosur presidents. EU does not want country to country bilateral agreements, they want and need cohesionEU wants to negotiate with Mercosur, but this has been an on-going game for over a decade because of our presidents, and more lately it can only be blamed on Dilma Rousseff (Brazil), Cristina Fernandez (Argentina) and Mujica from Uruguay whom refuse to advance on the correct direction. Some of their statements on rural affairs are simply a joke”http://en.mercopress.com/2013/08/05/brazilian-farmers-blast-mercosur-for-its-bad-leadership-and-worse-presidents?utm_source=feedlyphoto courtesy of xedos4 at freedigitalphotos.netEnd
