Continuing Country

Argentina Juan Cruz Mountford

Argentina has the third-largest economy in Latin America. While well-diversified, it has recently experienced a slowdown in economic progress with low growth and a rise in unemployment. Fluctuations in growth and recession have negatively impacted productivity as well as investments in technology. This has led the government to pursue structural changes that can facilitate growth, employment and sustainability within the context of an inclusive, green economy (IGE). Argentina joined PAGE in 2018 and is now a Continuing Country.

Aligning with the goals of the country, PAGE work aims to support SDGs 4 (Quality Education), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), 13 (Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts), and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) in Argentina.
