Argentina-U.S. Strategic Forum
The Argentina-U.S. Strategic Forum was established in 2017 by the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C. to promote a closer and more stable bilateral relationship between Argentina and the United States, independent of the change in political leadership in either country. The Strategic Forum is led by representatives from the private sector and counts on the participation of public sector representatives, including from the executive, legislative, and judicial powers. Cooperation, both between our governments and between the private sectors and our societies, is an important factor in contributing to stability not only between the two countries, but also in the Americas region. Lastly, the Forum complements existing platforms for official bilateral discussions, including the High-Level Consultative Mechanism, the Bilateral Commercial Dialogue, and other fora.
Over the past three years, Forum members have had the opportunity to meet with high-level U.S. government officials from various agencies, key private sector representatives working in Argentina, and political analysts focused on the region. These conversations encompassed topics such as judicial reform, energy and the environment, and each country’s response to Covid-19. Last November, the Forum hosted a group of federal Argentine judges for a week-long program centered on judiciary systems and judicial reform.
Marcos Bulgheroni and Maurice R. Greenberg serve as the Co-Chairs of the Argentina-U.S. Strategic Forum. The Director of the Argentina-U.S. Strategic Forum is Juan O. Cruz.
