Following a negotiation process of nearly 20 years, the European Union and Mercosur (Mercado Común del Sur, the full members of which include Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay) concluded the talks aiming at establishing the Association Agreement, which comprises chapters related to free trade as well as political cooperation. With regard to the importance of the Association Agreement, it is important to note that MERCOSUR is the most significant regional integration among the partners of the EU, and their cooperation can be regarded as the first classic example of interregionalism. The study gives an overview of the content and main provisions of the agreement and outlines the main steps leading to its taking effect. Mercosur is the most important trade and investment partner of the EU – the value of their bilateral trade in goods reached 88 billion euros, while the value of the bilateral trade in services exceeded 34 billion euros. The number of consumers of the two blocks together exceed 773 million. In the framework of the agreement, customs tariffs will be abolished for 91 per cent of the goods. Furthermore, several barriers to trade will be dismantled and food safety regulations will become more stringent. Finally, the article will briefly outline the advantages as well as the most common concerns and counterarguments expressed in relation to the agreement.
