Economy and Investment

Buenos Aires is one of the largest cities In Latin America. Also it ranks as the leading financial, industrial, commercial, and cultural hub of the region. The port of Buenos Aires has historical importance. So the people of the Buenos Aires city are called as portenos (people of the port). Today, this port is one of the busiest ports in South America. The sea-trade activities of a large part of the south-eastern region of South America depend on this port, as it is well connected with north-east Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay by the rivers that flow through the Rio de la Plata.

The agriculture sector also plays a vital role in the economy of the city. The Pampa Humeda situated to the west of Buenos Aires is famous as the most productive agricultural region of the country. Various products such as meat, dairy, grain, tobacco, wool and leather are manufactured or processed in the Buenos Aires metro area.
