"Impacts of integration of Brazil with the European Union through ageneral equilibrium model"
by Megiato, Ezequiel, Angélica Massuquetti and Andre Azevedo

This study analyses the bilateral trade between Brazil and the European Union (EU) in the period 2002–2012, examiningthe trade opportunities based on a full integration process. It employs a computable general equilibrium model from the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP), aiming at identifying the sectors that would benefit most from the agreement, according to theirtechnological intensity. The results show that Brazil benefits most from the agreement in terms of welfare and would also increasethe country’s exports of primary products. However, it would cause a decrease in production and exports of products with highertechnological intensity, increasing the country’s imports from the EU, in line with their comparative advantages.
