Commemoration of the 203º Anniversary of the May Revolution
On Friday May 24th, the Embassy of Argentina in Washington, D.C., commemorated the 203º Anniversary of the May Revolution and received the argentine community, as well as officials from the U.S. Government, Latin American Ambassadors and members of the diplomatic community, businessmen and academics, among others. As is customary, the National Anthem was intonated.
On the occasion, Ambassador Cecilia Nahón joined the celebration of the National Government in Argentina for the “decade won”, as this May 25, 2013 also marks the 10th anniversary of a process of profound political, economic and social transformation in Argentina during the presidencies of Néstor Kirchner (2003-2007) and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (2007-2011/2011-today). Overcoming the worst crisis in its history, since 2003 Argentina has experienced an unprecedented pathway of sustained growth, social inclusion and democratic consolidation.
