  • It is the fourth sized country in the region (43 million people).

Because Argentina is shifting towards an outwardly looking country, since the inauguration of President Mauricio Macri as president in December 2015 with the government launching a bold program to strengthen the economy and promote investment.

Recent trade facilitation measures include freeing capital controls, establishing a floating exchange rate, eliminating export taxes, and reducing subsidies on utility tariffs.
