Things are not going very well in Argentina. Unfortunately, the political-economic situation is very difficult and the prospects are not very encouraging.

Despite the context, country’s PMI Chapters continue to work and carry out their projects.

Last July, the PMI Chapter Buenos Aires had the honor of hosting the Global PMI Board of Directors meeting, with the presence of the PMI President and CEO, Mr. Sunil Prashara, the Chair of the Board of Directors, Mr. Randy Black, and the rest of the global directors, who have had the opportunity to meet with local organization authorities and interact with the chapter volunteers.

The visit of Sunil Prashara to local company Techint Ingeniería y Construcciones and to the Honorable Chamber of Deputies of the Argentine Nation as well as the meeting with authorities of Argentine Trains Infrastructure Organization – ADIF has been highly valued.

The three mentioned organizations have published in their internal communications and professional and social networks highlighting the strategic nature of these meetings.

Meanwhile, the PMI Chair of the Board of Directors, Mr. Randy Black, visited organizations in the province of Cordoba and Mendoza, accompanied by the leaders of the PMI Cordoba and Nuevo Cuyo Chapters, and Director Thomas Walenta traveled to Montevideo, Uruguay.

These meetings have reinforced the commitment to quality in project management carried out by the aforementioned organizations in our region and serve as an example for many others.

The agenda also included two receptions with leaders and volunteers of the PMI Buenos Aires Chapter, held in a beautiful palace with tango music in background.
