Latin America is interesting for our country as an important platform for integration into world trade and economic relations, and despite the circumstances associated with the self-isolation regime in Argentina, the chambers of commerce and industry of Minsk and Buenos Aires were able to successfully hold a joint event in the format of a videoconference, as evidenced by the presence of more than 30 Belarusian and Argentine participants. The heads of the chambers of commerce and industry Sergei Nabeshko and Ruben Oscar Garcia emphasized it, among other things, in their speeches.


Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to Argentina Vladmir Astapenko in his speech expressed the hope that the today's event would help find the new areas of cooperation and contribute to the growth of mutual trade.


Deputy Chairman of the Board of the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus Sergey Kalechits noted that Belarusian banks have accumulated significant experience in organizing international settlements and at the moment there that would be useful in solving problems related to financial aspects.


As part of individual online business negotiations, Belarusian participants were able to present their products to potential partners, discussed prospects and exchanged contacts for further discussion of cooperation.


Despite the fact that some Belarusian enterprises participating in the online meeting are only making their first steps on the Argentine market, the chambers of commerce and industry of Belarus and Argentina reasonably believe that their products will become a recognizable brand in the Argentine Republic.


The Minsk Branch of the BelCCI sees its task in the constant support and assistance to the export of enterprises-members of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry by further holding bilateral business meetings with the participation of Belarusian and foreign partners on a regular basis, both online and offline.
