So said British Deputy Foreign Minister Alan Duncan on Friday during the Business Networking Day, a gathering organized by the Argentine-British Chamber of Commerce at the Embassy in London.

 British Deputy Foreign Minister Alan Duncan told an audience of businessmen and Argentine diplomats that “for all your efforts, you have our full support diplomatically, commercially through export finance and through the Department of International Trade,” and added that Argentina“first on the list of countries that are eligible and able to attract investment” of British capital.

During the meeting, Duncan also said that “in many respects, bilateral relations would be the most perfect in the world and an example of all that two countries would like to see in the way they work together.”

Duncan added that he expects to hear about the projects, proposals, new businesses, joint ventures and all kinds of bilateral activity in the coming months. “My message is simple: I am pleased to see an overflowing room: I am.” he said.

Argentina's Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Carlos Sersale di Cerisano, praised Duncan as “our partner in everything we're doing with the UK, which includes a very positive agenda”. The Ambassador stressed that Argentina “is implementing a stabilization program with gradualism, which is the best way to avoid social conflicts”.

This year's Business Day meeting shifted the spotlight particularly to infrastructure, renewable energy, agribusiness and business and investment opportunities in the province of Mendoza.

    Myerdasault, you mean the Argentines in Tierra del Fuego demanding all their good be flown in? Most of their food arrives by lorry after crossing the Straits on a Chilean ferry, but they do receive other enormous subsidies .

    Oh, Myerdasault, your are clearly referring to the Argentines who are squatting in Antarctica and expect to have their every whim satisfied by the Argentine taxpayers.
