The United States ambassador to Argentina, Marc Stanley, held a working meeting at the Government House with officials from Gerardo Morales’ cabinet, within which the foundations were laid for the development of a joint agenda that, in principle, includes tourism and security as a priority.

The Secretary for Regional Integration and International Relations, Pablo Palomares, highlighted that “many job opportunities were generated in security since the United States is making great progress in this field”. He stressed that “a shared strategy will also be drawn up to tend ties that allow increasing tourist activity, since in Jujuy there is not as much tourism from the United States, as we do receive from Europe”. 

“The dissemination and promotion of our tourist offer will be aspects to be addressed in future meetings, among other issues of reciprocal cooperation,” he said.

The province of Jujuy has several destinations that attract thousands of tourists every year. The Salinas Grandes are one of the most visited places because of its status as a New7Wonders certified official National 7 Wonders of Nature, along with Río Mina Clavero (Córdoba), Glaciar Perito Moreno (Santa Cruz), Parque Nacional Talampaya (La Rioja), Selva Misionera (Misiones), Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi (Rio Negro y Neuquén) and Bañado La Estrella (Formosa).

On the other hand, Palomares expressed that “it was an honour to receive Ambassador Stanley”, during the commemoration of the 200 years of bilateral relations between Argentina and the United States.

The ambassador also visited the Hall of the Flag of the Government House, signed the Book of Honour and received the decree declaring him an “Illustrious Visitor”.
