British Argentine Chamber of Commerce supported by The Argentine Embassy present the 10th BACC Argentina-UK Business Networking Day on November 27th, 2018 at the Residence of the Argentine Ambassador, 49 Belgrave Square London SW1X 8QZ

G20/B20 Argentina offers a unique opportunity to increase UK private sector engagement, promote bi-lateral trade and business opportunities and strengthen partnerships between business institutions.

The British Argentine Chamber of Commerce BACC is proud to announce the 10th edition of the Argentine UK Networking day in London.

Since 2009 the event has attracted an important critical mass of speakers and audience, and therefore it represents one of the most important opportunities in the United Kingdom for exploring business with Argentina and learning about business case studies.

The BACC Business Networking Day will therefore be one of a series of activities carried out over the next 18 months which will be part of the G20/B20 Argentina UK Initiative.
