Europe is approaching the next stop in its global market-opening drive aimed at countering U.S. President Donald Trump's protectionist tilt.With EU-Mercosur trade worth almost 85 billion euros ($105 billion) in 2016, a market-opening agreement would be among Europe's biggest.Mercosur says an EU offer to open further its agricultural markets, including for beef, is inadequate. The EU counters that its farm offer is generous and Mercosur must agree to open its markets more to European cheeses, cars and car parts.European agricultural producers' interests, traditionally a touchy issue in Brussels, may be even more so now because Ireland is concerned about the potential impact of the U.K.'s planned exit from the EU on Irish beef exports.
