Argentina

Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world and the second largest in Latin America.

Argentina offers opportunities in fields such as renewable energy, telecommunications, transport, infrastructure, and agribusiness, among others. Given the high education level of the young population, and the prestige of Argentine universities, many cities have also become an attractive destination for mobile, software and game development.
