  3. To eliminate the difficulties and restrictions on International trade in goods, including agricultural products
  4. To promote, through the reciprocal trade growth, the development of their economic relations
  5. To provide fair conditions of international trade competition
  6. To create the conditions for the further encouragement of foreign direct investment (FDI) particularly for the development of joint investments; and
  7. To promote international trade and cooperation between them

The Egypt-MERCOSUR Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is esteemed to facilitate the doubling of international trade between the Arab Republic of Egypt and the member countries of the MERCOSUR (Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Paraguay).

The agreement will allow preferential treatment for the Egyptian products entering the Latin American markets and will reduce the cost of the Egyptian imports for the major items including sugar, meat, and soy oil.
