			   Argentina Hosts International Seminar 
			  *******************************

In November 1996, the ICA Buenos Aires Project Office and the Instituto Provincial 
de Accion Cooperativa, Argentina, jointly organised an International Seminar on the
"Argentine and Canadian Co-operative and Public Banking Sector: its Articulation 
with  Production".

The seminar, which was sponsored by the Confederacion de la Republica de Argentina 
and the Canadian Co-operative Association, attracted  delegates from Bolivia, Brazil,
Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay as well as the ICA Banking Committee for Latin America,
CCA International Business Network, and the Credit Union Central of Canada.

One of the results was the signing of an agreement between CCA and the Argentine 
co-operative banks, Banco Mayo and Banco Credit Coop, to develop reciprocal 
commercial and technical missions aimed at creating binational import/export enterprises.
