In Italy, the ambassadors of Paraguay, Brazil, Argentine and Uruguay, the founding countries of Mercosur, have recently signed (exactly on March 26, 2021) a contribution on this issue.
The ambassadors of the founding countries of Mercosur, and Paraguay is at the forefront, wanted to express hope and unity. This meeting took place in a historical moment where worldwide and within each country is really important to be joinded, but always respecting the differences.
Just 30 years ago in Paraguay and exactly in Asunción, the capital, the representatives of these countries realized a dream right here in Paraguay, a country until then always subject to divisions and dictatorships and that within ten years founded its way to democracy.
What is Mercosur? Simply put, it is an area where there is a free commercial exchange among Paraguay, Brazi, Uruguay and Argentine. To this day, in addition to free exchange of goods, a deep and cultural union among all the four Member States was born and took hold.
Also the spoken languages in these four States (Spanish and Portuguese) have been reiforced and in the schools they are taught simultaneously.
The democracy granted by Mercosur allowed young people and less young people to move freely within the 4 countries, almost as if they were a one big nation.
Let’s see a practical example about what Mercosur allowed to realize with FOCEM, that is the Structural Fund of Mercosur: to date more than a thousand dollars have been spent to build railways, roads, power plants and, in the last year also to fight against Covid 19.
Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentine united have a immense territorial extent, since they can almost cover 15 millions square kilometers, and the passport of Mercosur is a great resource for all citizens and for foreign people, who if apply for permanent residence, can receive it.
For economy, the agreement of Mercosur was essential, because it allowed to increase industrial production at the highest level, permitting to the Union of the 4 countries to become the fifth economy worldwide, due to the commercial exchanges and exports all over the world and also to local products. Thanks to Mercosur, excellent food products of the 4 Member Cuntries reach the whole world and come with a high-tech production.
Therefore, Paraguay is radically included in Mercosur to offer its citizens and foreigners, who are going to live in Paraguay, better and better opportunities.
And LIP is at their side to support them in this new adventure.
