Argentina, India to take up agri exports issues

03.08.2010 10:32 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) Agriculture minister of Argentina Julian Dominguez would visit New Delhi on Monday to strengthen bilateral trade between the two countries. Apart from meeting his counterpart, agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, discussing export of soy oil, pulses and food processing technologies, Dominguez is expected to ink three major agreements during the visit. India has replaced China as the biggest importer of Argentine soybean oil after April when Beijing banned Argentine soybean oil imports in retaliation for anti-dumping probes on products ranging from elevators to textiles.

According to MEA officials, leaders from agriculture, communications, information technology, farm machinery and food processing sectors would visit Argentina in September to deepen bilateral trade. Their visit would be followed by Indian vegetable oil importers and solvent extractors delegation which would tap the Argentine industry for joint ventures and investments in the agri business, the officials added. An Inter-American Development Bank research report said last week that India could become a potential buyer of agricultural and mineral products of Latin America and the Caribbean, given New Delhis rising buying power. With a 1.1-billion population and facing a lack of raw materials, India is poised to become a big buyer of agricultural and mineral products, main export resources of Latin America, the research — India: Opportunities and challenges for Latin America- said.
