First trade mission to Argentina in decade aims to lift exports to Latin America


A minister is leading the Government's first trade mission to Argentina in 10 years.

Trade and Investment Minister Lord Price said he wants to strengthen trade relations with Latin America's third largest economy.

He will visit Argentina today where he will also call for progress on a free trade deal

Lord Price said: "If we are to improve our exports to Latin America, it's vital that we not only build stronger trade ties with traditional trading partners like Colombia, but build on renewed relationships like that with Argentina.

 "The growing economies of Latin America offer huge opportunity for British business."
