Argentina has vast natural resources in energy and agriculture, with extraordinary fertile lands and has great potential for renewable energy. It is a leading food producer with large-scale agricultural and livestock industries. In addition, the country has significant opportunities in some manufacturing subsectors, and innovative services in high tech industries.
However, the historical volatility of economic growth and the accumulation of institutional obstacles have impeded the country’s development. Urban poverty in Argentina remains high and reaches 35.5% of population, while poverty in children rises to 52.3% (World Bank, 2020).
