Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero highlighted the role played by SMEs in this year’s record exports, when touring the plant of the metal-mechanic company Indave in Berazategui, province of Buenos Aires
The tour also participated mayor Juan José Mussi, the undersecretary of Trade and Investment Promotion, Guillermo Merediz; and the national director of Export Promotion, Laura Tuero.
“This export profile that the company is having is registered and is part of the export record that Argentina is having this year, reaching US$ 100 billion; and each SME, each company, large or small, from different sectors, has to do with this figure to which we were referring,” said the chancellor.
“We want to continue surpassing this record and it is about stimulating companies, SMEs and making things easier for them so that they can export”, he added.
In addition, he considered that theVaca Muerta potential opens a possibility in unconventional markets and this company has worked on the application of its own technology to develop these products”.
“Markets like the United States or Saudi Arabiathey are open to companies that have a specific and proven quality development for the sector”, he pointed out.
Continuing on the path of economic recovery is our main task. We are going to do it by gaining new markets.

The executive added: “We export to Latin America, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, where we participate in negotiations and trade missions together with the Foreign Ministry to be able to bring Argentine technology to the entire region, and a challenge for the future is Brazil, which despite the barriers, working together we believe we can have a good result there”.
