U.S.-Argentina Business Council

The U.S.-Argentina Business Council, as a platform for dialogue between each country’s private sectors, is dedicated to fostering bilateral trade and investment and will provide insight to both governments on policy that fosters business growth and economic competitiveness.

 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-Argentina Business Council (USABC) is the premier business advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening the economic and commercial relationship between the United States and Argentina. As investors that create jobs and opportunities in each market, our member companies have a critical role to play in maximizing the growth of the Argentine-U.S. economic partnership. We work together with both governments to set policy priorities and share best practices that strengthen United States  and Argentina commercial engagement to be more competitive in the global marketplace.

Meeting with officials at the highest levels of government, our members enjoy a leadership profile that sets them ahead of their global competition. Participating in strategic task forces and working groups, members advance innovative solutions to challenges encountered by companies operating in Argentina and the United States.

The U.S.-Argentina Business Council is distinctively positioned to advance policy priorities to improve the business climate and increase bilateral trade and investment. Drawing on the strengths of the  U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its network of partners and affiliates, including AmCham Argentina, the USABC offers members the tools, the expertise, and the networks to advance a broad sectoral agenda. 

Mission

Our mission is to foster a robust economic and commercial relationship between the U.S. and Argentina by identifying challenges and proposing solutions to issues hindering the commercial relationship, advancing trade and investment opportunities for USABC members, and supporting economic growth in Argentina and the United States, particularly by supporting Argentina’s economic reform efforts.
