Four Argentine satellite companies and the Argentine Aeronautical and Space Chamber of Commerce (CARAE) signed an agreement announced on Jul 23, 2020, with leading trade association for the global information technology industry The Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). The new agreement aims to promote a closer space relationship between Argentina and the United States and an improved environment for bilateral trade and investment in space-related goods and services between the two countries.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by CompTIA and private companies Satellogic, Arsultra, and DTA; state-owned INVAP; and CARAE, the Argentine Aeronautical and Space Chamber of Commerce.
"Argentina and the United States have a long history of cooperation in the space sector,” said Jorge Arguello, Ambassador of Argentina to the United States. “This agreement brings the private sector into this cooperation and represents a great opportunity for companies from both countries to strengthen collaboration and develop new business opportunities in the space industry."
“This agreement enhances the strong relationship between the United States and Argentina, which dates back for decades,” said David Logsdon, Senior Director, Public Sector, and Executive Director of the Space Enterprise Council (SEC). “CompTIA looks forward to facilitating strong and productive partnerships between private companies in the U.S. and Argentina as the commercial space industry continues to grow and expand.”
