It is estimated that Algerian purchases of fresh beef from all destinations have reached around 150 million dollars annually in recent years, which makes that country a very attractive destination for Argentine exporters.
On the other hand, Foreign Minister Cafiero confirmed that Mexico opened the market for fresh onion from Argentina.
