A pioneering free-trade agreement between Israel and a bloc of South American countries began operating. Israel is the first country outside South America to sign such agreement with Mercosur, a regional bloc that includes Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, and produces over $3 trillion in Gross Domestic Product. With the agreement, which came into effect Sunday, bilateral trade is expected to increase threefold in the next five years.
