Spurred on by the State of Parana and the Rhône-Alpes Region, the “Four Motors for Mercosul” and “Four Motors for Europe” alliances have initiated a joint approach aimed at capitalising on the success of European experience and using it in the construction of the South American network. These close ties are the cornerstone on which joint projects within the framework of relations between Mercosul and the European Union will be developed.

On 20 May 2009, the President of the Rhône-Alpes Regional Council signed a Memorandum of Intent with the “Four Motors for Mercosul” on behalf of the “Four Motors for Europe”, to establish cooperation between the two alliances.

This cooperation is primarily reflected in closer ties on the economic policy front and in research and development, the main aim being to set up joint projects.
