“Argentina, too, is forced into an energy transition, but it has some important advantages over other countries in its soil.”

With the Belgian-Luxembourg Chambers of Commerce abroad, the chambers in Belgium have a strong foreign network that can help their members in their international activities. Today we interview Rita Heirman and Yves-André Manche, respectively president and secretary-general of the recently associated Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Argentina.

Like many South American countries, Argentina is susceptible to political shifts, and it is an understatement to say that anyone entering these markets should be very well informed and guided. At the BLCCA in Argentina, based in la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, you are already well taken care of by Belgians with decades of experience in Argentina.

The Chamber was founded in 1917, which makes it one of the oldest of all foreign chambers operating in Argentina. The Chamber works with a tight-knit and active board of 9 members and has started a full revival two years ago. The Chamber itself gathers numerous companies active in the most diverse sectors, from dredging and steelworks, through logistics, 3D printing and engineering, to tourism, art and gastronomy.
