ShareRosario is the center of a vibrant local agricultural economy. As such, it is one of the key cities in South America’s MERCOSUR common market (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay).

Rosario is not only in the crossroad of intra-MERCOSUR land freight transportation (Brazil > Argentina > Chile), but also the hub for grain moving from the farms to the silos, plants or ports.  Rosario is also an ever-growing industrial center, with companies predominantly active in the following sectors: food processing (beef treatment, oil mills), textile, automotive, agricultural machinery, petrochemical, iron and steel, and machine tools.
