The ministers' meeting will analyze today how they are going negotiations of trade agreements with countries such as Mexico, Japan or the Mercosur zone.

For the minister, "when it comes to seeing if (the agreement with) Mercosur goes further than desired or least we have to make a joint assessment "and analyze" the sum of all the openings to all the commercial agreements that are being negotiated. "

He added that" it is the sum that goes to have more or less impact on all our productions. "
