Lt. Governor to lead Trade Mission to Argentina and Uruguay

14 Jul 2016


Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds announced today at the Administration’s weekly press conference that she will lead a trade mission to Argentina and Uruguay on October 1-8, 2016.  The trip is aimed at expanding trade and investment opportunities for Iowa businesses and is being coordinated by the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA).

Argentina is a very attractive market for U.S. exporters.  With imports all but frozen over the past four years, there is now a wide variety of market segments that need to import supplies, capital goods and services in order to manufacture locally, as well as companies that seek to import sophisticated technology and equipment that is not currently available in the market.  As Argentina addresses its current economic challenges, opportunities will increase and the possibilities available to U.S. exporters extend to both the public and private sectors. This is an excellent time to begin exploring the market and establishing relationships.  Participants on this trade mission will be primarily visiting the Buenos Aires and Rosario areas.
