TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – After spending much of the weekend monitoring wildfires in Southwest Florida and other parts of the state, Gov. Rick Scott is slated to hold a series of meetings Monday in Argentina as part of an Enterprise Florida trade mission.

Among the events, Scott is scheduled to meet at 3 p.m. in Buenos Aires with Argentina's president, Mauricio Macri, according to information released by the governor's office.

Scott was scheduled to fly Saturday night to Argentina but postponed the trip for a day because of wildfires in Collier County and other areas of the state.
