Closer cooperation between Argentina and the Netherlands
President Mauricio Macri of the Argentine Republic, will accompanied by his wife Juliana Awada, pay a state visit to The Netherlands in the last week of March 2017.
The invitation of His Majesty the King was presented during a visit to Argentina by Minister Koenders of Foreign Affairs in July 2016.
Netherlands and Argentina cooperate closely on many international political issues and work together on multilateral issues such as the promotion of the international rule of law and human rights conventions and to sustainable economic development and culture.
Argentina is the 21st largest economy, a member of the G20 and in 2018 chairman of the forum. The international orientation of Argentina offers opportunities in the field of trade and investment, particularly in the sectors of water, logistics and agri-business. Netherlands is one of the biggest investors and major trading partners of Argentina. In addition, the state visit provides an opportunity to further strengthen ties in the field of education and science.
