  4. The European Parliament's Delegation for relations with Mercosur (DMER) travelled to Buenos Aires and Rosario from 18 to 21 December 2023.

    The delegation organised meetings with governmental authorities, Members of the two branches of the Legislative, social partners and representatives of civil society organisations in Buenos Aires. During their visit to the city of Rosario, participating Members met with local authorities and with representatives of key economic sectors.

    The mission was carried out at a crucial moment, taking place after the election and inauguration of the new president Javier Milei. It allowed MEPs to obtain first-hand information on the profound changes that President Milei has promised to make. Furthermore, the EU-Mercosur Association Agreement was an important topic of debate, as its conclusion would strengthen the relationship between the EU and Argentina.
