This EUMercoPol proposal aims to generate solid scientific contributions supporting the formulation and implementation of Community policies. The proposal’s three principal objectives are: • Analysing the competitiveness of key agri-food sectors in the Mercosur region (Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia), vis-à-vis the EU commodity systems.. • Assessment agri-food policies in the context of production, consumption and trade environments, between the Mercosur and EU. • Analysing the ex-ante impact of liberalized trade between the EU and Mercosur on markets, budgets, and key indicators of their agricultural sectors. Direct results to be obtained • Databases, working papers, briefs and scientific publications diffusing new results on the competitiveness of key agri-food sectors in Mercosur and EU. • Databases, papers, policy briefs, and publications on the agriculture policies in the Mercosur and EU. • Databases, working papers, policy briefs and publications diffusing new information on the ex-ante impacts from EU-Mercosur trade liberalization, on EU and Mercosur priority parameters. • New and expanded econometric trade and impact models, for further valorisation in EU policy research.
