United States-Argentina Bicentennial: 200 Years of Friendship

January 24, 2023

In 2023, the United States and Argentina are celebrating 200 years of diplomatic relations. The United States values the benefits of our long-standing and mutually beneficial friendship, and we see even more opportunity on the horizon.  

The bilateral relationship is based on deeply held shared values, including a strong commitment to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.  The United States and Argentina seek to promote fair and equitable economic prosperity, save the planet from the effects of climate change, and advance human achievement through science, technology, and education.  The two countries also share strong people-to-people bonds that have been the bedrock of our relationship since the very beginning.     

As the world continues to face food and energy shortages, Argentina and the United States have a great opportunity to work together to help feed and fuel the world.  The United States is optimistic about Argentina’s future and is committed to working together to strengthen our friendship and cooperation.  We will continue to increase trade and tourism and people-to-people ties between our two countries long into the future.
