As countries look to re-build from the COVID-19 pandemic, finding new ways to deepen international trade and investment will be critical to the economic trajectory of Mercosur’s four member countries. At this critical moment, and in celebration of Mercosur’s thirty-year anniversary, join the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center for a conversation on the road ahead with the foreign ministers of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

As a bloc, Mercosur represents nearly 300 million South Americans and is equivalent to the world’s 5th largest economy. How can Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay cooperate on a joint effort toward post-COVID-19 economic recovery? How can closer ties between the United States and Mercosur promote understanding and lead to new opportunities for hemispheric prosperity at this global turning point?

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center on Friday, March 12, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EST, for this special conversation featuring the foreign ministers of Mercosur’s member states.
