Officials from Argentina and Australia met to think of a plan that encourages the approach of agricultural producers to technology.

Officials of the Secretariat of Government of Agribusiness and of the Embassy of Australia met and shared a presentation on the development of the sector in new technologies for the agricultural sector.

At the AgTech meeting, representatives of the private sector and officials exchanged experiences and analyzed opportunities for bilateral cooperation.
