The birthplace of the tango, Buenos Aires is the largest city in Argentina and offers a vibrancy similar to what you might find in New York City. The city is a top tourist destination that is known for its European style architecture and culture, so much so that it is sometimes referred to as the "Paris of South America.” Buenos Aires is rich in theatres, opera, symphonies, museums, literary halls, fine art, fashion and dance.
The city is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata and the Greater Buenos Aires conurbation, which also includes several Buenos Aires Province districts, constitutes the fourth-most populous metropolitan area in the Americas, with a population of around 17 million.
Argentina is the third largest economy in Latin America after Brazil and Mexico, while the Argentinian workers remain some of the most highly literate and well-educated in Latin America, mainly because education is totally free from kindergarten to university.
Argentina also has the highest level of English proficiency in Latin America and ranks #25 in the world, according the EF English Proficiency Index.
With the growth of internet usage and the high volume of IT talent, Argentina is becoming more. It is estimated that the software industry in Argentina grew more than 300 percent over the last decade and the technology sector contributes 19.2% to the national GDP.
In this context, Buenos Aires is emerging as an important hub for technology. The Regional Faculty of Buenos Aires of the National Technological University is offering a broad variety of IT courses, which relates to the growing IT talent available. Other advantages include the small time difference with major cities in Europe and the US, as the city is located in a time zone right in between both continents, and the Buenos Aires airport is a well-known hub for international flights.
