    Bolivia’s acceptance into Mercosur has so far been met with indifference and/or fear here; an important step for the country, although the full impact on Bolivian agricultural competitiveness will be harder to assess in the short term – there are those in Santa Cruz region that may see this as a political attack on them. It will be interesting to see how Bolivian domestic policy and domestic disputes pan out now they are a member – the TIPNIS dispute over the Brazilian funded road through the Bolivian Amazon is only one case of opposition from indigenous groups to ‘economic development’. Also interesting is the future of CAN and the exclusion of the US from these regional blocs during a second Obama term.
