UCLA Anderson School of Management

Please join the UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management (CGM) in hosting UCLA alumnus Noah Mamet, former United States Ambassador to Argentina, for a presentation and conversation moderated by Professor Andres Terech. Ambassador Mamet will discuss international relations and U.S. foreign policy issues under the two presidents and the State Department’s role. He will also address business and economic ties between the U.S and Argentina and the opportunities for business and investment in light of new leadership in each country.

Given its vast natural resources and enormous market size, Latin America is an attractive market for U.S. business and investment. However, the region has been subject to major political, social, and economic changes during the past decades that have impacted the way business is conducted throughout the region. After years of relatively low and sometimes negative growth, high inflation, populist policies, and corruption, Argentina, led by its president Mauricio Macri, is establishing structural changes to rebuild investor confidence, manage the fiscal deficit, and manage capital controls. Argentina, one of the richest economies in the world at the beginning of the 20th century, is on the ascendancy again and as it begins the process of rebuilding economic development, opportunities and risks abound. The U.S. and Argentina have enjoyed bilateral relations for almost two centuries. Today, the two countries must partner to address pressing global challenges such as climate change, refugees, defense of human rights and democracy, as well as expand trade and investment and promote cooperation in science and technology to deepen Argentina’s integration with the global economy and promote strong, sustainable and balanced economic growth.
