Young entrepreneurs seek profits in Argentina

Despite high inflation and bureaucracy, many new companies look to cater for luxury market.

     
    While Argentina still faces one of the highest inflation rates in the world, it has not deterred young entrepreneurs from starting businesses.  

    The growing economy, and an increase in personal wealth for some of the population, has raised the demand for luxury goods, like local wines.
     
    Entrepreneurs say that there are many challenges involved in doing business in Argentina, including bureaucracy.
     
    Most of them agree that at a time of trouble for the world's leading economies, investing at home is the safest bet.
