On March 2 and 3, SGI-Argentina held their Fourth Youth Peace Culture Festival at the Usina del Arte theater in Buenos Aires. A total of 6,000 youth, including performers and guests, attended the event. The festival also commemorated the 20th anniversary since the holding of SGI-Argentina's first general meeting in February 1993 which was attended by SGI President Daisaku Ikeda during his first visit to the country.

Entertainment included an array of songs and dances such as tango and a performance by the SGI-Argentina Ikeda Vanguard Orchestra. Mr. Ikeda also sent a congratulatory message.
