At the meeting, Governor Bordet underscored the great importance of exports for the economy of the Argentine Northeast and, in line with the statements of chambers of commerce, expressed an interest in expanding markets for tangerines and oranges from Entre Ríos.
Secretary Boldorini, for her part, conveyed to the authorities and representatives of the private sector that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship is ready to work jointly and in coordination with the Ministry of Agro-industry and other government agencies. Additionally, she stated that the Foreign Ministry will follow up on any procedures required to find a place for Argentine products abroad again.
The Ambassador reiterated the firm decision of Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra to place Argentina’s more than 140 diplomatic and consular representations at the service of provinces, municipalities and companies across the country, in order to create specific business opportunities that strengthen regional economies. In addition, markets and insertion strategies were analyzed in order to direct pharmaceutical products from Entre Ríos to non-traditional destinations.
