Argentina’s natural resources (copper, gas and oil), developed industrial base, and educated population make it attractive to investors. The government is actively seeking FDI, pro-market reforms are often on the agenda and the business climate has improved, though economic insecurity and crises often stall efforts. The national infrastructure needs updating, which also creates opportunities.
The US, Spain, and the Netherlands contribute more than half of Argentina’s total FDI. Other main investing countries are Brazil, Chile, Switzerland, Uruguay, France, Germany and Canada. FDI is mainly oriented towards manufacturing, mine and oil extraction, trade, banking and other financial entities, information / communication and agriculture.
Argentina has adopted a preferential tax regime for the automotive sector, to promote regional car production chains among Mercosur countries. But it’s ranking of 126/190 for Ease of Doing Business means there are obviously still issues to be solved.
