Location of Argentina

Argentina is a federal republic in the southern half of South America. Sharing the bulk of the Southern Cone with its neighbor Chile to the west, the country is also bordered by Bolivia and Paraguay to the north, Brazil to the northeast, Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Drake Passage to the south.

Benefiting from rich natural resources, a highly literate population, a diversified industrial base, and an export-oriented agricultural sector, the economy of Argentina is Latin America's third-largest,[1] and the second largest in South America.[2] It has a "very high" rating on the Human Development Index[3] and a relatively high GDP per capita,[4] with a considerable internal market size and a growing share of the high-tech sector.[5]
