Jorge Pedro Busti (born 18 October 1947) is an Argentine politician, formerly Justicialist Party governor and senator for Entre Ríos Province.

Busti was born in Concordia, Entre Ríos and graduated as a lawyer at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba.

Busti served as Mayor of Concordia from 1983 to 1987, and was first elected governor in 1987. In 1991 he retired as governor and was once again elected Mayor of Concordia. From 1995 to 1999 Busti returned for a second term as governor, then in 1999 became a deputy in the Argentine Chamber of Deputies. In 2001, he was elected to the Argentine Senate, but stepped down in 2003 after being elected for a third term as governor. Two of his former vice-governors have been investigated or prosecuted for corruption.

Busti played a leading role in the 2005/6 dispute between Argentina and Uruguay over the proposal to build a pulp mill across the river from Entre Ríos. In 2007 he stood down as Governor and was elected to the provincial Chamber of Deputies.

Busti is married with three children. His wife, Cristina Cremer de Busti, is a member of the Argentine Chamber of Deputies representing Entre Ríos.
