The U.S. - Argentine Relationship:
Shared Interests Powered by Energy Challenges
Eduardo Tempone
Minister, Economic and Commercial Section, Republic of Argentina
Note: The Ambassador of Argentina, previously scheduled to speak at this program, has been called to Buenos Aires for a meeting with high level authorities. Minister Eduardo Tempone will speak instead and your reservations will apply.  
The shale deposits recently discovered in Argentina could be among the world's largest and the country has the potential to be an economic powerhouse. But new policies for the energy sector, such as the nationalization of 51% of YPF shares, have caused concerns for financial markets and energy investors. Argentina will need foreign investment and the expertise of international oil field service companies. How will it become more attractive for potential investors? What path will Argentina take?

Join us for a discussion on Argentina's priorities, its place in the global economy, and the way ahead.
As a head of the Economic and Commercial Section, Minister Tempone works to strengthen bilateral trade, economic and investment relationships. He is a career diplomat, previously serving in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Mission of Argentina to the World Trade Organization, and the Embassy of Argentina in Paraguay.

Mr. Tempone earned a law degree at the National University of Córdoba and a master's degree in International Relations from the School of International Service at American University in Washington.

This program is co-sponsored by the Greater Houston Partnership, World Affairs Council of Houston, and the American Jewish Committee.
