The purpose of the meeting is to debrief civil society organisations on the status of the EU-Mercosur trade negotiations and to exchange views on the topic.

The EU is currently negotiating a trade agreement with Mercosur as part of the overall negotiation for a bi-regional Association Agreement, which also covers a political and a cooperation pillar.

A negotiating round took place in Brussels on 10-14 October between the European Union and Mercosur. Negotiators discussed the full range of negotiating texts and rules. They also exchanged views on how to progress on market access issues. The next negotiating round is foreseen to take place in March 2016.
