The Argentine Republic is located mostly in South America, with Chile to the west and Bolivia and Paraguay to the north.
The country is the 8th largest in the world and the 2nd largest in South America after Brazil.
The country has its roots in the Spanish colonisation of the region during the 16th century, although modern culture is also influenced by Italy, France, Germany and Britain.
By the early 20th century Argentina was the 7th wealthiest nation in the world.
Tourism plays a large part in the economy, with almost 6 million visitors a year experiencing the many museums and galleries, and music and the arts.
The country boasts World Heritage sites, historic architecture and national parks whilst displaying one of the world’s greatest ecosystems and regions of biodiversity.
Benefiting from rich natural resources, a highly literate population and diversified industrial base, manufacturing also contributes to the wealth of Argentina over a wide spectrum including food processing, tobacco products, auto parts and vehicles, leather, biodiesel and steel production.
