Mex­ico-Ar­gentina FTA ‘in two years’

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

Mex­ico would like to reach a free trade agree­ment with Ar­gentina to rapidly in­crease bi­lat­eral trade worth $2.5 bil­lion an­nu­ally, Mex­ico’s Econ­omy Min­is­ter Ilde­fonso Gua­jardo said on Mon­day. The min­is­ter made the re­mark one week af­ter an of­fi­cial visit by Mex­i­can Pres­i­dent En­rique Pena Ni­eto to Ar­gentina. As an FTA with the United States has en­abled bi­lat­eral trade to grow eight-fold, “with Ar­gentina we could rapidly dou­ble trade,” said Gua­jardo in an in­ter­view with lo­cal daily Clarin.
