Buenos Aires is the capital city of Argentina and it also represents the financial, cultural, industrial and commercial centre of the country. It is one of the busiest ports in South America and the presence of the Rio de la Plata means that goods can be transported by boat to Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay, making the city a major distribution hub for the South American continent. As well as its political and commercial importance, the city is also a major cultural region, often referred to as â€˜the Paris of South Americaâ€™, as it boasts many museums related to the countryâ€™s history and all strands of the arts, as well as being home to the Buenos Aires International Book Fair every April. There are many reasons, then, why a business or individual might wish to organise shipping to Buenos Aires.
