It is currently considered a leading city in the events and conventions sector, annually receiving more than 2 million business tourists from all over the world.
Argentine motorcycle market
In Argentina, the motorcycle market has been present since 1950 and is currently undergoing a good time. The so-called Motorcycle Agreement “Commitment for Production and Employment of the Motorcycle Industry", signed in 2017 between the government, companies and trade unions of the sector, increased production, a greater national integration and raised exports. Other growth factors were a 10 to 20% reduction in fees for part import in order to get units to be assembled in the country and a 20 to 35% increase to the tax applied to the finished motorcycle entry. Today, the country represents a market of almost 700,000 annual registrations, thus positioning it in the third place in South America, after Brazil and Colombia.
