Description of the Sub-Subject: India-MERCOSUR Preferential Trade Agreement (PTA).

The objective of the Preferential Trade Agreement is to expand and strengthen the bilateral trade relations between MERCOSUR (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Venezuela, and Uruguay) and India and to promote the growth of the international trade by granting reciprocal fixed tariff preferences with the final objective of creating a free-trade area between the MERCOSUR and India.

The major sectors covered under the India-MERCOSUR Preferential Trade Agreement are: meat, chemicals, leather products, iron and steel products, machinery items, and electrical machinery.

The India-MERCOSUR Preferential Trade Agreement (PTA) came into force in 2009.

The India-SACU Preferential Trade Agreement combined with the India-MERCOSUR and the Southern Africa Customs Union-MERCOSUR; it is envisioned that this will eventually lead to a free trade agreement (FTA) between India, the Southern Africa Customs Union and the MERCOSUR (a large 'free-trade area of the South').
