IMPORTS

Instruction: Argentina offers awide variety of products that can be purchased at competitive prices to satisfy international requirements. These include commodity products ranging from cereals and beef, to petrochemicals and basic steel to such specialized composite products as the engineering and installation of hydroelectric turbines and offshore platforms. Although it cannot match the sophistication of some European, North American, and developed Asian industries, Argentina's technological capabilities are more developed that those found in mostother Latin American countries.

With the establishment of free market policies, Argentine businesses operate in an open , competitive environment comparable to that found in other market economies, and survival underthese conditions serves to ensure that the goods produced meet international standards and cost considerations. The Argentine government has been waginga campaign to encourage more exports from its country.It has opened up its markets to international competition and has decreased the export barriers that had affected its domestic companies. 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been working to make sure Argentine exports are open to the world's principal markets, and has sponsored the creation of the Fundación Exportar to work toward this end. The dirección Genenral Impositiva (taxauthority) has issued resolutions facilitating exports through trading companies. 

In fact, exports have been increasing significantly: two percent in 1992, 7 percent in 1993, 21 percent in 1994,32 percent in 1995, and 14 percent in 1996. 
   Argentina's primary customers are Brazil, the US, and Chile. It has maintained historical trading ties with many countries of the European Union (EU) and it is beginning to establish stronger trade relationships with the other countries in Latin America as well as thosein Asia.
