Among other niche sectors is the animal protein one, with opportunities to increase livestock production and address the increasing local demand due to the country’s grain surplus.
Another case is the forest industry, with the potential to develop major industrial projects related to wood processing. In addition, there are several opportunities mainly to attract multilateral entities and climatic funding, carbon credits and to harness wood residues as a renewable energy source.
Regarding organic foods, Argentina has all the resources to become a strong competitor at a global level, as well as the potential to double the country’s production of organic fruit and vegetables.
