Information for the Press N°: 

Today, Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie and the Minister of Production, Francisco Cabrera, joined by the Secretary for International Economic Relations, Horacio Reyser, and the Secretary of Trade, Miguel Braun, received the U.S. Chargé d’Affaires in Argentina, Thomas Cooney, at the Foreign Ministry.

The purpose of the meeting was to continue advancing towards concrete progress in economic and trade affairs, which include beef, sweet citrus fruit and other fruits, among other products.

As regards biodiesel, in the light of the recent imposition of countervailing duties on Argentine imports as a preliminary determination resulting from an investigation pursued by U.S. private producers, the meeting was a propitious occasion to assess possible solutions within the framework of U.S. legislation before a sanction is actually imposed.

Along those lines, it was decided to explore the mechanisms provided for in U.S. legislation so as to facilitate dialogue between the private sectors of Argentina and the United States in order to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement, for which the intervention of the U.S. Department of Commerce is necessary.

At the meeting, strategic issues on the bilateral trade agenda were also addressed, including beef -to be traded in both countries-, Argentina’s reinstatement as beneficiary under the generalized system of preferences and fruit trading, among others.

In this way, the Argentine Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Production and the Embassy of the United States in Argentina continue working with a view to addressing all issues on the economic and trade agenda, which was especially revitalized since President Macri’s meeting with Donald Trump and the visit by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.
