Project Management Update from Argentina

In recent times we have had many developments regarding significant projects and events of Project Management in Argentina.

Among the highlights, we can mention that in the month of October has been released and launched the ARSAT-1, first Argentine telecommunications satellite for the purpose of providing telecommunications in the country. ARSAT-1 is the first satellite of the Argentine Geostationary Satellite Telecommunications System, a plan that involves the design and manufacture three own satellites and launch into orbit and operated by Argentina with the aim of increasing the country’s capabilities in telecommunications and promote the development of the space industry. Undoubtedly, a project of vital importance to the region!

Another of the highlights of this region is the realization of PMI Congress of the Latin American Southern Region, called PMI Tour Cono Sur, which this year celebrates its tenth anniversary.

This event taking place since 2005, currently is being developed in 11 locations in the countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. In the case of Argentina, the PMI Tour Cono Sur has three events, one in the city of Mendoza, organized by the PMI Nuevo Cuyo Chapter, one in Buenos Aires and the last one in the city of Rosario, organized by the PMI Buenos Aires Chapter. I have been fortunate to participate in the congresses of Mendoza and Buenos Aires and I can ensure that the level thereof is growing every year.

As keynote speaker of the PMI Tour Cono Sur in Buenos Aires, we had a presentation made by the Manager of Planning and Control of the company Nucloeléctrica Argentina S.A. (NA-SA), who was one of the responsibles of the project of construction of the Nuclear Plant Atucha II, Engineer José Salla.
