The beautiful and bustling city of Buenos Aires is on most people’s list of must-see destinations. Known as the “Paris of the South” due to its rich European heritage, it is a cosmopolitan, modern city. Its excellent universities are widely recognized for developing highly able graduates. Belatrix’s offices are located in the “Microcenter” part of the city, which is in the heart of the financial and commercial district.
Mendoza has a spectacular setting, located at the foothills of the Andes, and was featured in the Financial Times as a place with an unparalleled potential for doing business. Mendoza is at the heart of the Argentine wine region, with Malbec wines forging an international reputation. In addition to wine however, it also has excellent technical universities, producing a steady stream of highly qualified graduates. These universities have been at the forefront of the city becoming a hub for innovation and high-value services, as the city seeks to become the “Silicon Valley of Argentina”.
