We are extremely pleased to welcome the Ministry of Culture of Argentina as a National Member. Reflecting on the significance of joining the Federation, Dr Ivan Petrella, Secretary for Federal Integration and International Cooperation at the Ministry, commented: “Argentine cultural policy faces a number of challenges, the promotion of Argentine culture in the world and the generation of intercultural dialogue are among them. We believe that our membership in IFACCA is a step forward on this path. Argentina has internationally renowned personalities in the world of culture (Borges, Piazzolla, Argerich) but we have much more to offer. Likewise, we have the potential to benefit greatly from the exchange with other cultures. We believe IFACCA is the ideal platform to bridge the necessary cooperation networks needed for mutual benefit."
