Bangladesh and Argentina have shown interest in expanding the bilateral economic activities between the two countries.[2] Bangladeshi ships, pharmaceuticals, ready made garments,[4] melamine and ceramics[5] have been identified as products with huge potential in the Argentinian market.[6] There is a good demand in Argentina for Bangladeshi ceramics with FARR Ceramics being a major Bangladeshi ceramics exporter to Argentina.[7]

Exports of soybean oil from Argentina to Bangladesh are expanding.[8]
