The British Embassy took part in the 31st International Book Fair held in Buenos Aires from 21 April to 9 May, 2005. Britain had its celebration day on Saturday 30 April. The programme of events started with the presentation of a book in the Leopoldo Lugones room, attended by Ambassador Dr. John Hughes and by the Argentine historian and journalist Félix Luna. The book was "Rocky Trip – the Route of the Welsh in Patagonia," written by Sergio Sepiurka and Jorge Miglioli, with a foreword by Dr. Luna.
As a Welshman, the Ambassador said, it was a privilege and a pleasure for him to attend the presentation of a book that explores the historic ties between Argentina and the United Kingdom through the Welsh immigration.

At Welsh First Minister Rhodri Morgan’s invitation, the Argentine Ambassador to the UK Federico Mirré made an official visit to Cardiff on May 23, 2005. /
