Jorge Arguelles
  • Trade Commissioner, Mexico and Central America

Jorge has been a New Zealand trade commissioner in Mexico and Central America since 1997, during which time he has helped drive an increase of New Zealand exports and investment into the Mexican market.  

Jorge specialises in the agricultural technology and food and beverage sectors, though he has been involved in most products and services that have entered the market over the years. 

Jorge started his career as an international trader in the food division of the largest world trading company, Mitsubishi, where he traded food commodities from all over the world into Mexico, and exported Mexican food products to Asia. 

Following his time at Mitsubishi, Jorge took up a role as Senior International Trader at the Australian trading company Keys Trading with their office in Mexico, with a focus on meat imports and mineral exports. 

He then became Australian Meat and Livestock's representative for Mexico where he was in charge of developing and implementing the marketing strategy for Australian meat. 

Jorge studied international relations at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City and gained a Diploma in Marketing from the city's prestigious Tecnologico de Monterrey. 

During his university studies in 1986 he was selected from 1,000 students to be one of the 50 Mexican students to live and represent Mexico for one year at the Epcot Centre in Florida. 

Jorge has also studied German at the Georg Augustus Universitat in Gottingen and the Colón PrivatSchule Hamburg, Germany.
