It is a great honor for me to welcome you to the 66th anniversary of the Republic of India and to celebrate in Buenos Aires and with you the beautiful and democratic unity in diversity of India. Thank you kindly honor us this time.

Since my arrival in Argentina in July 2012, I tried my best to institutionalize a policy of Argentina to India and, in turn, find a place to India within the framework of bilateral cooperation between Argentina to the world. We have accomplished much in this period: in 2012 traveled to India 6000 Argentine tourists in 2014 reached almost 22,000. That same year, we added nearly 400 million dollars to our trade.

Argentina participated as an associate in the Business Conclave India - Latin America held in Delhi and was attended by 200 major industry representatives and Argentine trade, as well as ministers and officials. Trade between India and Argentina is about to reach 3.5 billion dollars. Our hard work over the past two years has now created a platform to further increase the bond between the two countries.

Our sixth Festival of India in November 2014 attracted nearly 80,000 participants and took our cultural festivals Córdoba, Jujuy, Tandil, Salta, Entre Rios, Almirante Brown and Pinamar. As part of our Regional Action Plan, received in India over eleven visits governors, mayors and ministers of production and industry.

The work continues and now it has strengthened the framework for cooperation in the fields of trade, economy, science and technology, culture and education so they can be further developed. The process is slow, but progress is emerging happily.
