Argentine-Greek relations

Argentine-Greek relations are foreign relations between Argentina and Greece. Both countries are represented by an Embassy in the other one's capital. At least 30,000 persons of Greek descent live in Argentina with about 5,000 with Greek passports. The majority of Greeks live in Buenos Aires.


On June 1, 1959 the two countries signed an agreement on the Abolition of Visas for Holders of Diplomatic and Service passports. On January 31, 1975 they signed an agreement on the Abolition of Tourist Visas for the Citizens of the two Countries.

In 2008 Greek Deputy Foreign Ministers Yannis Valinakis and Theodoros Kassimis visited Argentina, and met with representatives of the Greek community. Deputy Minister Valinakis talked about the important role played by the Greek communities in Argentina, and signed a bilateral agreement on Economic Cooperation. For his part, Deputy Minister Kassimis met with Victorio Taccetti, and signed a bilateral agreement on Scientific and Technological Cooperation. He also met with relatives of members of the Greek community, who disappeared during the military dictatorship.

Economic relations

The bilateral trade volume is low. Argentinian exports to Greece remained limited but steady during the period 2004–2008. In October 2008, a representation of the Argentinian Federal Council for Investments visited Greece aiming at the strengthening of the bilateral cooperation in the field of renewable energy sources.
