We develop political, cultural, economic and commercial ties to improve Britain and Argentina's relationship.

We contribute towards increasing bilateral trade and investment and by promoting sustainable, low carbon economic growth . We champion UK values and work with a wide range of Argentine organisations and institutions who share similar values in areas such as human rights, climate change and science and innovation.

We provide consular assistance for British nationals, offering help appropriate to each individual circumstance, and coordinating with the honorary consuls’ network in Mendoza, Santa Fe and Córdoba. We also cover Paraguay remotely.
