*THIS SEMINAR WILL BE IN SPANISH, WITHOUT SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION AVAILABLE.

 

Despite challenges facing Argentina’s national economy, Mendoza, Argentina’s fourth-largest province and the beating heart of its celebrated wine industry, remains a source of investor optimism. The province has benefited from a high level of integration with global markets and a diversified local economy, which includes major players in agriculture, mining, energy, tourism, and winemaking.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 12 at 9 a.m. to discuss the opportunities and challenges for this economic hub, as Mendoza’s governor, Alfredo Cornejo, and a delegation of high-level business executives, join the Latin American Program’s Argentina Project for a discussion and reception featuring Mendoza’s wine and culture.
