Buenos Aires is home to national and international companies and one of the main investment centers in the region. In recent years it has become one of the most attractive markets for business due to competitive costs, qualified and creative human capital, and modern communications infrastructure.
It is currently considered a leading city in the events and conventions sector, annually receiving more than 2 million business tourists from all over the world.
Automotive industry market
With more than 70 years of tradition in the country, the Argentine automotive and spare part industry is consolidated as the second industry in importance in South America and holds the 24th position worldwide regarding production and commercialization.
It contributes approximately 10% of the country's industrial production gross value and it is one of the main and more dynamic sectors of the Argentine economy.
At present, it is undergoing a specialization process with a greater scale and percentage of integration of local parts and pieces; it reincorporates to the world with investments and generates more quality jobs for Argentine people.
