Argentina’s big, bustling cosmopolitan city is where the majority of its exports leave the country. Buenos Aires is where you’ll find the majority of its agricultural commodities are processed and shipped.
Why do business and exhibit there
As Argentina re-enters the global market, its emerging economy has taken great leaps towards tackling the economic problems of the past. The current government has identified that increasing foreign participation in Argentina will play an essential role in improving the economic state of Argentina.
The Ezeiza International airport is about 45 minutes - 2 hours away from the city. You can get a taxi to take you to your hotel, or you can ride the city bus.

- Local currency is Peso.
- Many business people in Buenos Aires speak English, but the Argentine variety of Spanish is usually the main language in business contexts.

- There aren’t any obvious cultural sensitivities, but it is worth noting:
- When meeting and greeting your new Argentine colleagues or business contacts, a handshake is a perfectly acceptable way to introduce yourself.
- Hierarchical and formal relationships are important.
- If you are unsure of how to address a contact or superior, you should, at first, use their title followed by their full name, just to be safe.
