Tourism policies focusing on economic growth in Argentina, at both regional and national levels, were established at the start of the 21st century. In most cases, typically such policies resulted more in wishful thinking for a growth in tourism than in concrete outcomes involving the local population and improving their quality of life. However, an interesting case study is the development plan drawn up by the Province of Buenos Aires. In contrast to others, this project actually has been effective, by involving a wide spectrum of the southwest inhabitant of the province and hence turning tourism into an economic and social development tool.
