On Wednesday, September 16th, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's U.S.-Argentina Business Council and AmCham Argentina held the inaugural U.S.-Argentina Business Forum, an exclusive high-level meeting for public-private engagement to promote increased trade and investment between the U.S. and Argentina.
The Forum provided a space to highlight three main priorities with key officials:
- 1. Reiterate the U.S. private sector’s deep commitment to Argentina.
- 2. Emphasize that the private sector has an important role to play in strengthening market potential through sustained public-private dialogue across key sectors such as energy, innovation, and agriculture.
- 3. Stress the importance of greater predictability and openness to generate long-term investments and sustainable growth. This was the first bilateral meeting to include both, public and private sector participation. Representing the Argentine government were Min. Felipe Solá, Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship, Matías Kulfas, Minister of Productive Development, Gustavo Béliz, Secretary of Strategic Affairs for the President of Argentina and Amb. Jorge Arguello, Argentine Ambassador to the U.S. Participating from the U.S. government Wilbur Ross, U.S. Secretary of Commerce and Amb. Edward Prado, U.S. Ambassador to Argentina.
