As the global community continues to grapple with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Atlantic Council is open for business. All business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please view a statement from our President and CEO.

After months of negotiations, Argentina released on July 5 what it says is a final restructuring proposal for $65 billion in debt. August 4 is the new deadline for creditors to accept the offer. Seeking to avoid default, will this latest package find a balance between creditors’ demands and the government’s financial and economic restrictions? A debt deal will determine the fate of the country’s long-term finances and the trajectory of the Argentine economy amid a global pandemic.

Under what conditions could an agreement be reached, and what would be the immediate and long-term implications of the deal? Deal or no deal: what are the implications for economic growth and investment in Argentina?

Join the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, in partnership with the Atlantic Council’s Global Business & Economics Program, on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. EDT (3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. Buenos Aires time), for a conversation with former Argentine officials, financial experts, and private sector leaders on future scenarios and consequences for the country and the region.
