As US President Barack Obama prepares to visit Argentina for the first time, the new administration of President Mauricio Macri has generated significant attention. With the potential for significant reforms, is it a new day for the energy industry in Argentina? What can the new government do to encourage greater foreign investment? What could the promise of unconventional resources mean for consumers?

Join us for a timely discussion on Argentina's energy outlook in the Macri era. The event will launch the Atlantic Council's latest policy brief, The New Argentina: Time to Double Down on the Energy Sector?, authored by Argentine energy expert Cristian Folgar.
