Government supports $100 billion agriculture export plan

The Argentine Agribusiness Council (CAA) submitted to the Government its proposal to export for $100 billion. In the CAA they argue that, with the promotion and encouragement of investments, an export plan, a law for that purpose and fiscal and financial stability for ten years, the country can jump from $65 billion in exports to $100 billion. Also, it would generate roots in the interior and 700,000 new jobs, more than 200,000 of them directly contributed by agribusiness.
