Foreign trade of Argentina

We know the foreign trade to the exchange of goods, products and services between two or more countries or economic regions, for their transformation, sale or use. It is a transaction that involves the exchange of a thing for something else, usually money.

The international economic environment is becoming more dynamic and global; globalization is reflected both in the enormous growth of world trade and in the rise of foreign direct investment at unforeseen rates. Having a vision of the future and having a predisposition to learning are two characteristics of the companies that have succeeded, and to achieve this we must have a strategic analysis and a strategic business plan.


Importation: it is the legitimate transport of national goods and services exported by a country, intended for the use of domestic consumption of another country. Imports can be any product or service received within the border of a state

Export: is it shipped of products, merchandise or services outside the countrys border to the outside. These shipments are regulated by a series of legal provisions and device controls that act as a contextual framework of trade relations between countries.

Reasons to import or export

There are several factors for an SME to decide to go out and confront the global market, that is, to assume the challenges of being global. Why should it be complicated, in the case of being one of the survivors, if you are comfortable in the domestic market?

The answer to this could be found in that in recent years the economic opening of the 90s and the prolonged recession since 1998 has wreaked havoc among the small and medium-sized companies in our country.

On the other hand, in the first instance, the Argentine domestic market, by itself, is not attractive to a company that wants to grow, because of its size, the low purchasing power of its economically active population, the poor distribution of income that only about 20% of its population has high capacity of consumption), in the current circumstances, in a market like this, it is very difficult to grow.

Companies that have survived this context can only hope to stay afloat if they do not develop another vision. For some entrepreneurs, this may be the only thing that interests them, but they will be exposed to the one, before the least contingency, they are outside the business. This is why the only way to grow is to export, which means as a strategy:

-Find a more attractive market, with more consumers, acquiring another scale of operations.

-diversify the quality and quantity of customers, better distributing their risks (atomization)

– take advantage of the exchange rate, in order to earn more income.

– look for good advice and step on insurance, to minimize the risks inherent in a new way of acting.

Competitive advantages

Learning: new ideas, product innovation, services, distribution, etc.

Prestige: the clientele values ??the presence in the foreign market

-To know the possibilities of access, penetration and conquest of external markets and their norms, requirements and modalities.

-To know the comparative and tariff advantages granted by multilateral agreement systems.

– Have an export policy designed.


Indicators that are important to know

Rent per capita:

is an indicator of purchasing power and population.

Rate of economic growth:

the interest of a market is very different when its economy is in an expansion phase than when it is in recession.

Image of our country in the country of destination:

if our country enjoys a good image this can facilitate export activity.

Possible export subsidies:

governments often grant preferential financing lines to developing countries

Individually address the export project.

It should also be noted that another fundamental reason is that work

Shared makes the use of resources more efficient.
