The market potential of the Southern Cone is growing

sd"Argentina and its two smaller neighbors, Uruguay and Paraguay, form a promising market and investment ground for European companies. The vast natural resources in energy and mining of the three countries are yet to be fully commercialized. With the growing global demand for food and animal feed, there is also plenty of room for expansion of the agricultural sector. I am convinced that we haven´t seen the best of these countries yet. 

The local business environment is sometimes particular and might be challenging to Europeans, so there is a clear need for local knowledge and expertise for new companies entering these markets. These countries are working hard to attract foreign investments and facilitate commercial relations between MERCOSUR and the European Union countries. If the EU and MERCOSUR manage to agree and sign the association agreement in the near future, there will even more commercial and other opportunities.
The overall trend is overtly promising. During the next ten years, these three countries will grow in importance. In order to plan and carry out successful operations in this part of the world, companies from Finland and other European countries will need trained advisers and employees who are familiar with the local ways of doing business and who are able to master the Spanish language.”
Teemu Turunen – Ambassador of Finland to Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay
