Situated at the southern end of South America, Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world. It borders Chile in the west, Bolivia and Paraguay in the far north, Brazil and Uruguay to the east, with the Atlantic ocean on the southern, east side and the Pacific on the southern west. It has a population of around 40 million with more than a third of the population living in greater Buenos Aires. Argentina is a Republic with its congress structure similar to that of United States. Argentines are colonials, mainly from European ancestry, who have been known to describe themselves as Italians; speaking Spanish, acting as though they are English. The official language is Spanish, although in Buenos Aires, they have their own version known as Castellano, understood to be influenced by the large number of Italians living there. Argentina has been an agricultural exporter for the past four centuries, with exports ranging from beef to grain, from dairy products to leather, from fruit and wines to Polo players. More recently its exports include oil, gas and phosphates. It is self sufficient in most foodstuffs. Investment opportunities abound at this time of turn-around, from investing in some of the most fertile farming land in the world; where the topsoil is over a metre deep, to development opportunities in commercial real estate ventures, from forestry investment to lifestyle developments. If it is diversity you are looking for, then Argentina is your oyster. Tourism is wide open, from ski resorts to hunting operations, to action-packed outdoor activities, to Eco-tourism opportunities.
