Argentine province advances ICT cluster project

The government of the Argentine province of Mendoza and other stakeholders have formed an organization to promote the creation of a local IT and telecom cluster, 10 years after plans were first announced.

A deal was inked between representatives of the public and private sectors and academia.

The company is called Polo TIC Mendoza (Mendoza ICT cluster/hub) and authorities are building a technology park in the province's namesake capital.

Argentina's national economy, infrastructure and energy deputy minister Enrique Vaquié, among other officials, was also present, the government of Mendoza province said.

Vaquié highlighted the importance of partnerships between the public and private sectors and specifically within the area of ICT.

The construction of the technology park reflects this, he said, adding that the objective is that jobs for skilled workers are created.

The technology park will initially comprise a four-storey central building of 3,700m2 designed to house 20 IT firms from the software, hardware, computing, electronics and telecom segments.

Construction has reached the 80% completion mark.
