On Tuesday, January 9, Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX) and Representative Eliot Engel (D-NY) announced the launch of the U.S. House of Representatives’ new Argentina Caucus.

The Argentina Project, an initiative of the Wilson Center’s Latin American Program, hosted a reception to mark the official launch, where caucus members, including Representatives Jeff Duncan and Paul Cook, were joined by their counterparts from the Argentine National Congress to celebrate the occasion. Former Congresswoman Jane Harman, CEO & President of the Wilson Center, delivered introductory remarks, and was joined by the Latin American Program's Cynthia Arnson and Benjamin Gedan.

 

The Argentina Caucus is designed to strengthen U.S.-Argentine relations in areas of mutual concern, including promoting democracy and combatting transnational crime. The caucus will be a platform for public briefings and meetings on Argentina; a resource for lawmakers and staffers interested in developments in Argentina; and a vehicle for strengthening the bilateral relationship as Argentina takes on increasingly prominent regional and global leadership roles.

 

During the event, Chairman McCaul remarked, "I wanted to thank the Wilson Center for hosting this, and also for your leadership in really being the spearhead for this caucus. If it wasn't for the Wilson Center, I don't think we'd be here."
