STRATEGIC ALLIANCES

Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE) leads a worldwide network of experts and is the first contact in Switzerland for all issues related to international commerce.

With the directive from the Swiss Confederation (Secretariat of State for Economic Affairs SECO) and the Swiss cantons, S-GE promotes exports and investments helping its Swiss clients to carry on their business abroad.

The Swiss Chamber of Commerce of Argentina (CCSA) maintains a service agreement with S-GE to work together and guide Swiss companies in their development and expansion process to Argentina. This alliance places CCSA as the local strategic benchmark between both countries and provides new opportunities for its associates and its network of experts.

BILATERAL TRADE

Between Switzerland and Argentina, there is a high political, economic and cultural bond, as well as a traditional root of friendly relations and trust between both countries. Argentina houses the most significant Swiss community in Latin America, with almost 16,000 people, while 10,000 Argentines live in Switzerland today.

The bilateral trade between Switzerland and Argentina registered a constant favorable balance for Argentina during the period 2008-2016. In 2016, exports reached the sum of US $ 1,141 million, which implied a fall of 9.32% compared to 2015. With imports for US $514 million (25.18% lower than in the same period of 2015), the trade balance was surplus for Argentina in US $626.9 million.

In 2016, Switzerland ranked 14th as the export destination and 15th as the supplier of Argentina. The primary good exported by Argentina to Switzerland is “gold for non-monetary use” (95.7% of the total).
In South America, Argentina is the second destination of Swiss investments (17%) after Brazil (54%). BCRA data indicate that in 2015, Switzerland was the 6th investor in Argentina. The stock of Swiss FDI was US $ 3,749 million (variation of -4.8% vs. 2014).
Swiss FDI in Argentina is not very diversified. The most relevant sectors are oilseeds and cereals (37% of the stock of Swiss FDI in 2015), chemical industry, rubber and plastic (23%) and oil (7%). Switzerland is a substantial investor in the oilseeds and cereals sector in Argentina, which explains 49% of the total stock of FDI in that area in 2015.
