City of Buenos Aires, Argentina

City on the Rio de la Plata. Founded in 1580, Buenos Aires is one of the world's great cities.

As Argentina's principal seaport, Buenos Aires is the country's commercial center.

Much of the nation's industrial plant has been built within the Federal Capital district and, increasingly since 1930, in the suburbs of Greater Buenos Aires.

Meat-packing and other food-processing industries, petroleum refineries, and chemical factories have been concentrated in the city's southern side; motor-vehicle assembly plants and varied light industry (such as printing establishments and textile mills) are to the west and north.

The main offices for national and international banks as well as the Stock Exchange and the Cereal Exchange are in a compact financial district located around the junction of Bartolomé Mitre and San Martín avenues, and most major retail outlets and leading boutiques are along Florida and Santa Fe avenues.
