On the other hand, there are great expectations in relation to the evolution of the Brazilian market, which is of great strategic importance for certain sectors in Córdoba. We will continue our efforts to consolidate trade with Asian markets; in particular, for the food sector and some added-value products. The service subsectors linked to technologies with great export potential, such as Gaming, Ad Tech for agricultural applications, audiovisual and medical technologies, will remain strong in terms of export. Latin America will receive numerous visitors from our Cordobese companies.”

The goal is to strengthen the work we’ve already started with the auto parts, rubber & plastics, and pasta & baking sectors, and to start the research process for the agricultural machine and software sectors. In this Department, we seek to attain better quality information about international trade, organize training events and activities tailored to the needs of the Cordobese businessperson, and provide foreign trade specialized assessment services.”
