Mercosur: ambitious policies, poor practices

André Azevedo ()

Brazilian Journal of Political Economy, 2004, vol. 24, issue 4, 594-612

Abstract: Mercosur has achieved important advances like the removal of intra-bloc tariff and non-tariff barriers and the establishment of a common external tariff for most products. However, its ambitious plans to deepen the integration process comprising harmonisation of policies in areas like competition policy, government procurement, technical barriers and phytosanitary measures have not been implemented yet. This paper examines Mercosur policies in relation to tariffs and other non-tariff barriers comparing them with their implementation, in order to examine the extent to which the proposals have actually been fulfilled. JEL Classification: F13; F15.
