Importing to Argentina business mechanics


I would like to ask the opposite question that Christopholous is asking - does anyone have any experience in IMPORTING various items into Argentina? We are not talking about textile here -since to import textile and fabrics into Argentina is "discouraged".
Licenses procurement is my main contention, how does this really get accomplished and why are the rules different depending on who and where you ask -isn't there uniformity for something like this? I know Arg. can be as different as they want but global trade rules also must be followed when doing business in a multi-national level. - I am interested in knowing personal accounts of how your own business experience and dealing with Arg. government departments has made a positive and negative impact on you as a business person. Thanks.
