Trainings to Brazilian law enforcement authorities and awareness programs performed by Alianza on FTA piracy throughout 2013 resulted in ex officio inspections and seizures of pirate FTAs, in particular at the Brazilian border with Paraguay. As of September 2013, 12,000 FTAs had been seized and destroyed by the authorities.
Alianza plans to sign a cooperation agreement soon with the Brazilian Customs in order to intensify this initiative in 2014.
