Argentina will build a new consulate to serve Quintana Roo, Yucatán and Campeche states as well as Belize. It will be built in Playa del Carmen.

President Alberto Fernández, Cabinet Chief Santiago Cafiero and Foreign Minister Felipe Sola planned the new diplomatic office in response to the number of Argentine citizens who have settled in the area over the past few years. It replaces a 2015 resolution to open an office in Monterrey.

Some 15,000 Argentines live in the Playa del Carmen area, most of them under 30. It’s also a popular destination for Argentine travelers, many of whom have been stranded during the coronavirus pandemic.

The diplomatic office will also aim to achieve “a greater dissemination of the image of the Argentine Republic and promote new flows of commercial and cultural exchange.”

Argentine’s ambassador to Mexico is Carlos Tomada, a former labor minister under Presidents Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
