Argentina’s partnership with NRW reinforced

Wednesday, 4 December 2019, Düsseldorf, NRW, Germany: Premier Armin Laschet received Ambassador Pedro Raúl Villagra Delgado, Head of Mission of the Argentine Republic to Germany, for his inaugural visit to the State Chancellery. 

In addition to the deepening of relations, the forthcoming inauguration of the new Argentine cabinet and the general political situation in South America were also discussed.

Premier Armin Laschet: “Argentina is an important partner for transatlantic relations with Latin America in view of the currently complicated political situation in parts of South America. Europe and Argentina will grow closer as a result of the free trade agreement negotiated this year between the European Union and the Mercosur states. North Rhine-Westphalia also has a positive view of a deepening of economic cooperation”.

Ambassador Villagra was accompanied by the new Argentine consul in Bonn, Dr. Eduardo Nazareno Muñoz, who likewise was received by Premier Laschet for a courtesy call.
