Argentine Foreign Ministry sources have stated that the call focused on the agrifood, wine, energy, infrastructure, transport and tourism sectors, as a result of business and investment intelligence research conducted alongside our Embassy in China.

The business agenda to be followed in Beijing on 16 May includes business rounds in which over 800 Chinese businesspeople will participate, as well as a Trade and Investment Forum at which President Macri, Foreign Minister Malcorra, Ministers Caputo, Aranguren, Dietrich and Buryaile, and officials from the Ministry of Tourism will give presentations.
