3.3 newer rapidly developing union of south american nations So right now it's an intergovernmental union 1:27that's integrating two existing trade blocs 1:30together into one. The two blocs are the Andean Community of Nations 1:34CAN is its acronym 1:37and MERCOSUR which you now know a little bit about. Having said that, I think that MERCOSUR and CAN probably still exist 1:54and they're still functioning, but they're in a slow 1:58motion process of integrating into a singular whole. Andean Community of Nations before 2:05and you won't find it in the textbook either 2:06because it's a small grouping, a trade bloc 2:10in northern South America 2:11that honestly, and sorry to my Andean friends, 2:14but really hasn't constituted much of an economic engine, really not that much trade 2:19hasn't been a big deal, hasn't made an impact to the northern region 2:23in a broader respect 2:25The Andean Community of Nations was Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru That group is now unified with this other trade bloc that you know about called MERCOSUR They're now incorporating the three other sovereign states of the South American continent 2:51Chile, which was an associate member of MERCOSUR, 2:53Guyana, and Suriname. It's not Latin America. It doesn't include the Caribbean, Mexico, or Central America 3:22This is simply the sovereign states of the South American continent. It's new, they've been working on it for a decade, perhaps more, The 2004 summit was the biggest deal because that's 4:18the first time all 12 heads of state of South America 4:23got together and signed the Cusco Declaration Panama and Mexico, while not in this club nor in South America, 4:43were present as observer states to witness this. South American Community of Nations, (2004) now USAN on modeling this new South American community 4:53basically in the mold of a European Union." 4:56Meaning, in the foreseeable future, 5:00we want to have a unified passport system,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
