BUENOS AIRES, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- Argentine President Mauricio Macri said Thursday that his country would seek to boost trade with Canada.
"We have to strengthen trade exchange with Canada and the rest of the countries across the continent. It is the best way to generate jobs and solve our problems," Macri told a joint press conference with visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Trudeau offered to help Argentina in its efforts to accept several thousand Syrian refugees.
"We have a lot of experience in the matter of refugees and we are willing to collaborate with Argentina in that regard, so they can receive 3,000 citizens from that country who are fleeing the war," said Trudeau.
