A trade agreement with Mercosur would offer major opportunities for Swiss exporters. That was the message stressed by Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann summing up his trip at a press conference on 8 May. The mission he led to Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina allowed him to gather a wealth of objective information.
Argentina was the last stage of Federal Councillor Johann N. Schneider-Ammann’s six-day Mercosur trip. Together with his delegation, he visited a cattle farm 180 km from Buenos Aires. The programme also included ministerial meetings as well as business and science seminars.
Meat production and its acceptability for the Swiss market were important themes during the head of department’s visit to Uruguay. At the end of the third leg of his journey, he gave an assessment of his meetings and visits.
