A virtual platform has been launched by the Argentine-Arab Chamber of Commerce so Argentine exporters can sell their goods to the Arab market through it and carry on business activities during the pandemic.
AACC president Julio Husain Made was quoted by the Brazil -Arab News Agency (ANBA) that the institution works to foster the commerce between Argentine and the Arab countries and the relations between the two regions is based on trust, affection and personal connections. “If there’s no trust or affection, it’s extremely hard to break into that market,” said the president.
As the coronavirus pandemic started, the AACC’s activities, such as participations in trade shows and exhibitions, had to be halted, as did the face-to-face meetings with Arabs. “So we decided to offer a tool to build this rapport online,” explained Made.
