The Argentine delegation at the Business Forum comprised of representatives of 25 companies, including some textile firms, and was headed by Foreign Trade Secretary Mrs. Beatriz Paglieri.
 
The Business Forum was aimed at promotion of trade and economic relations between two countries and at providing an opportunity for Armenian businessmen to present their business proposals.
