Argentine VP Voices Admiration for East Asian Values

TOKYO – Argentine Vice President Gabriela Michetti told EFE on Friday that her country seeks strategic investment partnerships with East Asian countries such as Japan or South Korea, which have growth models based on “work and education.”

“We have great investment opportunities that are of interest to companies such as the Japanese ones,” Michetti said during an interview in Tokyo.

She pointed to the Argentine government’s four-year, $100 billion infrastructure plan, which gives the largest role to private investment.

Michetti said she traveled to Asia this week at President Mauricio Macri’s request and that the choice of Japan and South Korea as destinations reflects those countries’ importance to Buenos Aires’ plans.

“They are two countries we view strategically, because they are two countries that besides having significant economic development, they have built on the basis of education and work. And these are two very important values for our new political project in Argentina,” she said.

Michetti described as “very good” the atmosphere surrounding her meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who welcomed an invitation to visit Argentina.

Abe, for his part, called on Macri to become the first Argentine president to make an official trip to Japan since Carlos Menem was here 18 years ago.
