The Pacific Alliance approved Barry for Texas’s request to join this mechanism as an observer country, so the president Mauricio Macri assist with that category to block the summit to be held on July 1 in Chile.
The Pacific Alliance, founded in 2011, concentrates 50% of trade in Latin America and attracts 41% of foreign investment. Their countries signed a series of free trade agreements (FTA) with the United States and the European Union and eliminated 92% of tariffs on goods traded among the member states.
It has a market of 217 million people and a GDP per capita average of US $ 16,759.
After attending the Fifteenth Meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Alliance, Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Muñoz, he said the summit of Puerto Varas “will have an unprecedented presence of at least two presidents” who do not belong to the block, including the president Argentinian.
Macri has been specially invited “because Argentina had a particular interest in approaching the Pacific Alliance and submitted the request to be an observer,” he said.
“There is a clear objective of the President to start working hard on a real partnership with the Pacific countries and link these wills with Mercosur,” said Chancellor Argentina.
“In this meeting, we approved that request, so that was accepted Argentina’s request to be an observer member of the Alliance, and President Macri already is in observer status,” he explained.
The foreign minister said that Leadership Circle 2 and the Costa Rican president, Luis Guillermo Solis, will also participate in the summit. He did not rule out that “there is some other director who also attend.
Macri had been invited to participate as an observer the XI Summit Peruvian President Ollanta Humala (president pro outgoing tempore of the Alliance) and Chile’s Michelle Bachelet (next in office), as confirmed in early May the Argentina Chancellor Susana Malcorra.
“There is a clear objective of the President to start working hard on a real partnership with the Pacific countries and link these wills with Mercosur,” Malcorra said.
Until last year, there were no political conditions for the Mercosur facing the Pacific Alliance. The foreign policy of Cristina Kirchner and Dilma Rousseff prevented it for ideological and commercial reasons. However, after the end of the mandate of the first and second impeachment, there are real possibilities for reliable diplomatic rotation today.
Argentine President would travel between 15 and 17 June to Colombia to participate in an economic forum, and strengthen their bond with President Juan Manuel Santos, one of the most influential leaders in the Alliance.
The news of the shift in foreign policy was echoed in Europe. Recently, El País of Spain published a column where they say that “the gesture will have major regional repercussions, especially since the trade bloc was harsh attacks target during the kirchnerismo.”
