Argentina – geographically attractive
Eighth largest country in the world and second largest country of South America, which is located between Andes Mountain and Atlantic Ocean, offers a nature that is full of contrasts. Argentina fascinates people with cities with over one million inhabitants and huge agriculturally useful areas. There are vast plateaus, deserts with bizarre sandstone regions, forests, high mountain regions and glaciers. Between the north most and south most point, there is a distance of 3,500 km with the result that all climate zones from subtropical to sub-Antarctic (Tierra del Feugo) are represented here. 6,995 m high Aconcagua, the highest mountain of the continent, is located in the Andes Mountains. In the warm and humid climate of the Humid Pampas, there are many cattle herds. In the metropolitan area of the capital Buenos Aires, there live 12 million people; the city itself has 3 million inhabitants. The national language is Spanish. Currency of Argentina is Peso, which can be easily mistaken for the US-Dollar due to the same representation.
Argentina – Economic situation
After many years of protectionist policies, the Government has started with global market integration and liberalisation since 2015. After the initial adjustment recession, the country could register an economic growth of 2.9 % in 2017. The economic boom resulted from the public sector construction industry and the agriculture-based economy. After a long-standing slump in investment, there is a high pent-up demand of water and sewage technology. The government plans for investments amounting to 44 billion US-Dollars for the next 15 years. Thus, one can expect an enormous potential of orders in the sector of water management. The government focuses on private investors and attracts foreign companies as sub-contractors, suppliers and service providers.
China is Argentina’s second largest trade partner. Besides textile and shoes, they also procure cars, computers and household appliances from Asia. Thanks to the rich natural resources, mineral resources like copper, Bauxite, iron ore, crude oil, natural gas, silver, gold, tin and lithium are exported all over the world.
Traditionally, agriculture has a key role and agro-products are the major revenue source for foreign exchange. After reframing of agricultural policy, the government of Argentina plans to promote the development of the country as the exporter of the high-quality foodstuffs. With this objective in mind, they abolished almost all the export duties for agro-products. The most significant agro-product is soya, which grows on 60 % of the agricultural crop land. Besides Brazil and USA, Republic of Argentina is also among the largest corn exporters. For beef production, they have set an ambitious goal for themselves.
