China is now the number one buyer of Argentine beef, overtaking the European market.

Guatemala is recognized throughout the world for the quality of its intricately handwoven textiles. Mayan women have used them to make blouses known as huipiles that, over hundreds of years, have come to represent an important part of their cultural identity.
