Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, will visit Buenos Aires as part of a diplomatic tour through Central and South America, which will take place from August 13th through the 18th of this year.
According to a recent White House press release, Pence will also visit government and business leaders in Cartagena and Bogota, Colombia; Santiago, Chile; and Panama City, Panama.
“At President Trump’s direction, and in a sign of the high importance he places on this region, in August I will travel to Central and South America,” said Pence during the inaugural Conference on Prosperity and Security in Central America on Thursday. “I will build on the good work that has been done throughout President Trump’s Administration to bolster our shared economic and security goals.”
The Vice President’s trip to Buenos Aires appears to be a follow-up on his call with Argentine President Macri in February. During the conversation, both leaders discussed Argentina’s hosting of the G-20 Summit in 2018, which they believe will advance the country’s standing in the global economy.
