Chapter Summary

The 1988 Treaty on Integration and Economic Cooperation was, in turn, an outgrowth of the Argentine-Brazilian Program for Integration and Economic Cooperation (PICAB), begun by Presidents Sarney and Alfonsin in 1986. A review of the composition of Argentine-Brazilian trade provides further cause for optimism about the future viability of Common Market of the South (MERCOSUR). In recent years, Paraguay and Uruguay have expressed increasing dissatisfaction with the way Argentina and Brazil appear to overlook or disregard their concerns with respect to the Southern Cone economic integration process. The Chile-MERCOSUR Free Trade Agreement was incorporated into the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI) framework as Economic Complementation Agreement or Economic Complementation Agreement (ACE) No. 35. Article 3 of ACE No. 36 allows the signatory states to accelerate the agreed upon tariff reduction timetables found in the annexes.

Keywords: Common Market of the South (MERCOSUR); Economic Complementation Agreement (ACE); Latin American Integration Association (ALADI); PICAB
