There was dinner last night in the presidential palace of New Delhi to entertain Mauricio Macri and the Argentine delegation that visits India. Macri met yesterday with Ram Nath Kovin at Rashtrapati Bhavan Palace and then it all ended with the invitation.
Macri had started yesterday in India, perhaps the most important tour of Asia with a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He signed a 48-point joint statement in which they agreed to deepen bilateral "multifaceted relations". From now on, in addition, the relationship between Argentina and India will have the rank of Strategic Association.
After the meeting the Indian prime minister offered a meal at Hyderabad House, where Macri invited him to try yerba mate, one of the products that Argentina wants to sell to India. Before, the Argentine had met with 120 businessmen, margend of the contacts that the Argentine delegation maintained with local groups.
Who gave a summary of the activities carried out by the Argentine delegation was the secretary of International Economic Relations of the Foreign Ministry, Horacio Reyser. In terms of market opening, he hoped that export protocols were approved for lemons, fresh eggs, egg products, fish-bone meal and chia seeds. "These are new products that can enter a market that is projected to be the most populated in the world," said the national official.
Reyser also said there was a commitment to "continue working to achieve access to more agro-industrial products: oranges, mandarins, grapefruits, grapes, blueberries, nuts and yerba mate." As for cooperation, agreements were signed on renewable energies, Tics, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, agricultural mechanization and technologies applied to plant-animal health.
Finally, the official highlighted the organization of "700 B2B meetings between Argentine and Indian entrepreneurs, Workshops and Sectoral Business Forums in agribusiness, tourism and mining." Of the events, reyser noted that 85 national firms, 120 entrepreneurs and more than 500 local companies participated.
Among the companies that come together to meet and join groups from India and Vietnam are HSBC, Grupo Los Grobo, Irsa, Vicentín, Biogénesis Bagó, Sancor Seguros, as well as members of the Sociedad Rural Argentina,
Macri will arrive today in Mumbai, located on the coast of the Arabian Sea. That is the true financial center of India. There, he will close the Argentina-India Economic Forum and close his State visit.
He will be only a few hours in Mumbai, before leaving for Hanoi in the afternoon.
After leading the closing of the Business Forum, Macri is scheduled today to meet with Maharashtra's Chief Minister of State, Devendra Fadnavis.

Mumbai is also a densely populated city with an area of 603.4 square kilometers and a population of almost 20 million people and the metropolitan area occupying 437.77 square kilometers; accounts for 70 percent of the country's maritime trade.
Many automobile, software, engineering and biotechnology industries were set up, making it the most powerful and richest city in India.
