Event Summary:
Join us to learn about Infrastructure opportunities in Argentina.

Following more than a decade of neglect, the current Government of Argentina – backed by investments from the World Bank and the InterAmerican Development Bank – is planning a massive upgrade of Argentina's infrastructure and wants to attract U.S. construction, engineering and technology companies to bid on upcoming tenders.

President Macri's election at the end of 2015 marked a massive shift in Argentine economic policy. The Argentine government is reforming and opening the economy to the world. GDP growth is up and poverty rates are down. Investors are returning. U.S. agencies such as ExIm Bank, USTDA and OPIC have re-entered the market. The Macri Administration is integrating Argentina back into the world economy, investing in infrastructure and cracking down on corruption.

Projects incorporated into the 3-year transportation public works plan (estimated to value over $33 billion) include significant cargo and passenger rail upgrades; addition of over 1,700 miles to the national highway system; and significant subway, tunnel, and port upgrades.

The World Bank has committed $6.6 billion for 22 investment projects in Argentina.

The Government of Argentina has $21 billion worth of projects to be financed through Public-Private-Partnership. These include highways, cargo rail, electric transmission, hospitals, prisons and more.
