Commercial Diplomacy

Trade barriers prevent your company from entering or expanding business in the Argentine market? Having difficulties bidding on an international tender in Argentina?

We can help you overcome trade barriers, bureaucratic problems, or unfair trade practices to ensure that your company has the best possible chance to sell its U.S. products and services in Argentina.

Market Access Advocacy

1. We expand markets for U.S. businesses by overcoming trade restrictions that inhibit their ability to participate in the Argentine marketplace, and

2. We promote favorable business environments in Argentina, focusing on areas where the lack of good policies or enforcement creates trade barriers for U.S. exports.

Our staff of Argentina experts executes this mission in two principal ways: 1) by developing specific and tailored country engagement strategies; and 2) by pursuing a range of cross-cutting policy initiatives to address international market access challenges, such as corruption, failure to enforce intellectual property rights, and discriminatory standards and regulations that unfairly restrict U.S. exports.

We also have the primary responsibility within the International Trade Administration for:

  • developing and implementing market access policies and programs including bilateral, multilateral and regional trade and investment policies and programs;
  • identifying existing and potential market access problems and initiating government action to overcome market access problems systematically region-by-region;
  • participating, as appropriate, with the Assistant Secretary for Manufacturing and Services in reviewing international sectoral issues which arise in a bilateral, multilateral or regional context;

We achieve these objectives through company or industry casework, expanding markets through overcoming trade restrictions and promoting favorable business environments.

Trade Advocacy

In addition, the U.S. Government’s Advocacy Center helps U.S. companies --small, medium and large enterprises-- win government contracts across the globe.

World-class advocacy through accredited diplomats and other U.S. officials can give you the edge on your Argentine competition and help you when unanticipated problems arise.

Support can range from meetings by U.S. Commercial Service Officers and U.S. Ambassadors with high level Argentine government officials, to letters and calls from high level U.S. authorities.

Leverage the resources and influence of the U.S. Government to level the playing field. Put the resources and authority of the U.S. government behind your team in pursuit of international contracts or other U.S. export opportunities in Argentina. Our staff of commercial specialists stands ready to assist you.
