Trade Mission to Argentina
April 23 - 27, 2017
Recent changes in Argentina have generated much interest by US companies in exploring export opportunities to one of the more significant markets in South America.
With a population of 41.5 million people and a GDP of approximately $609 billion, Argentina offers excellent opportunities for Florida companies interested in increasing their footprint in the Southern Cone. The United States is Argentina’s third largest trading partner. U.S. goods and services trade with Argentina totaled an estimated $22.4 billion in 2015; making Argentina the U.S.’s 28th largest goods export market in 2015. Argentina is also Florida’s fourth largest export destination with an estimated $3.3 billion worth of exports in 2015.
The Argentine market poses promising opportunities for Florida companies due to the recent change in political leadership that has adopted a pro-business approach for the country. The newly elected President, Mauricio Macri, has already implemented several pieces of legislation that allow Argentine importers an easier process to buy foreign goods.
The industry sectors listed below provide the best opportunities for exports from the United States to Argentina. Given the recent easing of import restrictions, there are many promising prospects and interested companies should know that the list below is not exclusive.
