Alibaba's CEO Jack Ma and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Tuesday in Buenos Aires to open up new trade opportunities for both China and Argentina, as well as to support Argentinian merchants that are currently marketing products on Alibaba's e-commerce platforms.

The MOU mainly focuses on two kinds of items - wine and fresh produce.
