Dear Madam,

We refer to your e-mails of  17 December 2021 in which you make requests
for access to documents, registered on 22 December 2021 under the above
mentioned reference numbers.

Your applications are currently being handled. However, we will not be in
a position to complete the handling of your applications within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 21 January 2022.

An extended time limit is needed as the applications concern documents
held by different Services, which must be consulted.

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 11 February
2022.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours sincerely,

Please, find attached the reply to your request of reference, signed by Paolo Garzotti, Head of Unit Latin America in DG TRADE.
Best regards

Dear TRADE D2 INTERNAL,

Thanks for the reply. I see that the final texts of the EU-Mexico Global Agreement (which are under legal scrutiny) will not be made public until the parties have signed the Treaty.

Yours sincerely,

Lucía Bárcena
