Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and his Uruguayan counterpart, Jose Mujica, will meet next week to discuss bilateral trade, the official Agencia Brasil news agency said Wednesday.

The two presidents will meet on Monday in Brazil's capital city of Brasilia. It will be Mujica's first visit to Brazil since his inauguration on March 1.

Agencia Brasil said that the presidents are to discuss the creation of a special committee to boost trade negotiations in a bid to speed up the eventual signing of trade agreements.

They will discuss the building of an energy transport line between the two countries, a new bridge on the border, as well as the improvement of the navigation infrastructure in the Mirim lagoon on the border.

The presidents are also expected to discuss political issues, such as the international aid to Haiti and the political situation in Honduras.
