In addition to climate issues, the meeting also addressed the conclusion of a trade agreement between Mercosur and the European Union, which has been going on for more than two decades. In this agreement, free trade between the regions would be established, thus facilitating the export and import of various products from the blocs with lower taxes.

This Monday (17th), the president will have other bilateral meetings, in addition to participating in a meeting at a business forum that takes place in parallel to the summit. Lula’s return to Brazil is scheduled for Wednesday (19).
