The two ministers signed a declaration on agriculture cooperation and agricultural trade promotion.
"Agriculture is key to both countries. Bulgaria is a global leader in lavender production and has the best quality rose oil on the world market. We have a potential to increase two-way trade in these sectors," said Taneva.
Some 30 per cent of Bulgaria's cheese production is export oriented, said Taneva. Its exports to Argentina are mostly plants used in perfumery and medicine, chocolate and temporarily preserved cherries. Raw peanuts are Bulgaria's largest export from Argentina.
The two ministers also discussed scientific and technological cooperation in organic agriculture between Bulgaria's Agricultural Academy and Argentina's National Agricultural Technology Institute. ■
