CABEI Executive President, Dante Mossi, said, "As CABEI, we are pleased to have an extraregional partner of Argentina's weight and to have it be our gateway to Mercosur. The Argentines have enormous potential in productive sectors that are totally complementary for our region, which is why it is essential to strengthen ties between the nations and exchange knowledge that will generate positive impacts for both.
Maximiliano Alonso, CABEI Director for Argentina and Colombia, commented, "The Bank's agenda aims to develop new opportunities and projects not only with the Argentine State, but also with the private sector to leverage new opportunities for the country's development and, at the same time, strengthen ties between Argentina and Central America.
