Argentina is seeking new markets for its aluminium exports as the US probes the national security implications of imports of the metal, an executive at Aluar Aluminio Argentino, the country’s leading producer, told Reuters.

Aluar commercial director Miroslavo Puches said the company was planning to boost shipments to Brazil to 100 000 t/y by 2019 from 60 000 t/y currently, as the neighbouring country’s economy recovers. It is also hoping to expand exports to Asia from the current 60 000 t/y, he said.
