According to Wikipedia, Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina, and the second-largest metropolitan area in South America, after Greater São Paulo. It is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, on the southeastern coast of the South American continent. The Greater Buenos Aires conurbation, which also includes several Buenos AiresProvince districts, constitutes the third-largest conurbation in Latin America, with a population of around thirteen million. [1]

Buenos AiresThe city of Buenos Aires is not a part of Buenos AiresProvince, nor is it the Province’s capital, but an autonomous district. In 1880, after decades of political infighting, Buenos Aires was federalised and removed from Buenos AiresProvince. The city limits were enlarged to include the towns of Belgrano and Flores (both are currently neighborhoods of the city). A 1994 constitutional amendment granted the city autonomy, hence its formal name: Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires (Autonomous City of Buenos Aires).

Buenos Aires is rated one of the 20 largest cities in the world. Along with São Paulo and Mexico City, it has been ranked as the most important global city and competitive marketplace of Latin America. Buenos Aires has a high quality of life, ranked 61st in the world and its per capita income is among the three highest in the region. It is the most visited city in South America (ahead of Rio de Janeiro) as well as the second most visited city across Latin America (behind Mexico City), and most important, largest and most populous of South American capitals.  Buenos Aires is a top tourist destination, and is known for its European style architecture and rich cultural life, with the highest concentration of theatres in the world.

ArgentinaArgentina, officially the ArgentineRepublic, is a country in South America, bordered by Chile to the west and south, Bolivia and Paraguay to the north and Brazil and Uruguay to the northeast. Argentina claims sovereignty over part of Antarctica, the Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.

The country is a federation of 23 provinces and the autonomous city of Buenos Aires, its capital and largest city. It is the eighth-largest country in the world by land area and the largest among Spanish-speaking nations. Argentina is a founding member of the United Nations, Mercosur, the Union of South American Nations, the Organization of Ibero-American States, the World Bank Group and the World Trade Organization, and is one of the G-15 and G-20 major economies.

Argentina is Latin America’s third-largest economy, with a “very high” rating on the Human development index. Within Latin America, Argentina has the fifth highest nominal GDP per capita and the highest in purchasing power terms. Analysts have argued that the country has a “foundation for future growth due to its market size, levels of foreign direct investment, and percentage of high-tech exports as share of total manufactured goods”, and it is classed by investors as middle emerging economy.
