USTDA Reopens Program in Argentina

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

(USTDA)  ARLINGTON, Va. – Today, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency announced the Agency is resuming its program in Argentina for the first time since 2005. Prior to 2005, USTDA’s highly successful program in Argentina had supported priority projects primarily in the transportation, environmental and energy sectors. These programs contributed to significant U.S. industry engagement in the country while also helping to advance Argentina’s infrastructure goals.

“USTDA is very pleased to be re-engaging with Argentina,” said Regional Director for Latin America and the Caribbean Nathan Younge. “We look forward to working with new partners in the public and private sectors across Argentina to achieve mutually-beneficial results.”

Following President Mauricio Macri’s commitment to attract major investments in Argentina’s infrastructure development, USTDA will prioritize the advancement of transportation, IT and clean energy projects to support the country’s goals.

USTDA announced the reopening of its program during a U.S. Chamber of Commerce event on “Argentina’s New Economic Agenda,” as a precursor to the U.S.-Argentina Commercial Dialogue in Washington, D.C. The Dialogue will provide an opportunity to highlight USTDA’s project preparation programs and lay the groundwork for launching new partnerships across Argentina.
