Argentina has vast natural resources in energy and agriculture. Within its 2.8 million square kilometers of territory, Argentina is endowed with extraordinary fertile lands, gas and lithium reserves, and has great potential for renewable energy. It is a leading food producer with large-scale agricultural and livestock industries. In addition, Argentina has significant opportunities in some manufacturing subsectors, and innovative services in high tech industries. A sector with special business potential during the current epidemic is the Life Sciences & health sector. The highly innovative Argentinian private health sector has around 2,000 hospitals and focuses on quality and efficiency in healthcare.
The EU’s historically strong relationship with Argentina is reflected in the level of Foreign Direct Investment by EU companies. The EU holds bilateral dialogues with Argentina on economic and trade matters through the EU-Argentina Joint Committee, established under the EU-Argentina Framework Trade and Cooperation Agreement. Although EU companies and investors reported some improvements in administrative procedures for export during recent years, a number of significant problems remain, which the EU continues to monitor and take up in bilateral contacts with Argentina. Exporting to Argentina requires detailed knowledge of all administration and permits needed.
