A delegation led by IPGA chairman Bimal Kothari recently met with visiting Argentine Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Trade Santiago Cafiero and Ambassador Hugo Gobbi to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral agricultural trade and open up potential avenues for expanding ties between the two countries.
