The value of imports from Argentina decreased by 13.3 per cent compared to in February of the previous year, thus amounting to $278 million in February 2021. Major product categories of imports from Argentina were Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude), representing 22.8 percent of imports, Sitc971 (gold,non-monetary) 16.4 % and Sitc036 (crustaceans, molluscs and aquatic invertebrates, whether in shell or not, fresh (live or dead), chilled, frozen, dried, salted or in brine; crustaceans, in shell, cooked by steaming or boiling in water, whether or not chilled, frozen, dried, salted o) 7.1 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Argentina declined by 18.1 per cent compared to in February of the previous year, thus amounting to $427 million in February 2021. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc752 (automatic data-processing machines and units thereof; magnetic or optical readers, machines for transcribing data onto data media in coded form and machines for processing such data, n.e.s.), which represented a share of 6.8 per cent of total exports, Sitc542 (medicaments (including veterinary medicaments)) 4.5 % and Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76) 4.0 % of the exports.

Development during January-February 2021

The trade in goods between January and February of 2021 was of lesser value than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The value of the trade was $1.4 billion, down 17.8 %.

The largest value in imports was in Sitc971 (gold,non-monetary), worth $80 million. In export the largest value had Sitc752 (automatic data-processing machines and units thereof; magnetic or optical readers, machines for transcribing data onto data media in coded form and machines for processing such data, n.e.s.), worth being $66 million. The trade balance between USA and Argentinan between January and February was in surplus for USA. The timing surplus was $364 million.
