Argentina is the seventh largest trading partner of Dubai in Latin America, with a non-oil bilateral trade that exceeded USD 225 million in 2019, representing an increase of 21% compared to USD 186 million in 2015.
The local office actively participates in identifying commercial opportunities and possible investments in sectors such as agribusiness, infrastructure, renewable energy, logistics, pharmaceuticals and tourism, as well as the promotion of general bilateral trade between both nations.
The office interacts with the main government agencies, such as the Argentine Investment Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Embassies, the Argentine Chamber of Commerce and also with many private sectors. The current economic context makes commercial openness to new markets a determining factor for the growth of companies that are encouraged to think bigger.
