On May 31, 2017 the Importers Chamber of the Republic of Argentina posted Law 27361 of which Article 1 establishes the approval of a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between MERCOSUR members and the Arab Republic of Egypt. This agreement was approved by the Argentinian Senate and Chamber of Deputies.

The FTA was originally incorporated as Common Market Council Decision 16/04 by MERCOSUR, which consists of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Argentina was the final country to ratify the agreement.

The agreement consists of five chapters and several annexes and is available in both English and Spanish.
