According to recent estimates, the agricultural and bio-industrial systems (considering the relationships and interrelationships of primary production), contribute about 21% of the gross value of Argentine production. With our organization we fundamentally promote value addition by promoting local production and exploring opportunities for sustainable and competitive growth.

In addition, we work with other ministerial departments and state agencies to strengthen growth strategies with equity.
