Buenos Aires, September 25. Official sources said that Argentine Interior Minister Eduardo “Wado” de Pedro traveled to the United States on Sunday with a delegation of state governors from the north of the country, as part of a tour aimed at attracting investments to regional economies.
The Argentine Ambassador to Washington, Jorge Arguelo, explained through his official account on Twitter that this tour is part of the “Federal Agenda Program”, which aims to attract investment and promote exports from nine provinces in northern Argentina: Formosa, Tucumán, Salta, Jujuy, Santiago Del Estero, Catamarca, La Rioja, Misiones and Chaco.
The tour, which will take place from September 26-30, will include “multiple meetings” with companies and investment groups from the United States that are “working or planning to invest” in Argentina.
The chief of interior and provincial governors will also hold working meetings with representatives of the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the United Nations, according to Arguello, to whom the exports are made. It is a “national priority”.
“This mission is very important, there is no precedent, such a large group of conservatives has never come to the United States,” the ambassador said in an interview with the newspaper “The Liberal”.
This will be the third trip to the United States led by representatives of the Argentine government this month: Economy Minister Sergio Massa toured the North American country between September 5 and 12, while President Alberto Fernandez traveled the week to New York for the United Nations General Assembly.
