In 2012, private entities from four nations (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay) created the Grupo de Países Productores del Sur – GPS – (the Southern Producing Country Group). It consists of a group of experts and entrepeneurs who willingly committed themselves to contribute to the setting of a Southamercian pole capable of meeting the new food demand in a sustainable way, as well as generating wealth, employment and capital stock in the region.
This effort is done having two premises clearly in mind. The first one, from a geopolitical point of view, is that teamwork will endow the four countries involved with a greater negotiating power than if they worked separately. The second one is that there will unquestionably be better consolidation perspectives of the region if you share a common plan of development for the food sector as a whole.
