Radio Victoria's plant is in the city of Río Grande.

The government passed several laws in late 2009 to provide fiscal benefits to companies that manufacture or assemble products in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina's southernmost province.

The law was designed to boost ICT product production in the region. It was paired with a law imposing higher taxes on imported goods.
