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

With Argentina’s debt negotiation deadline approaching, whether a deal is reached will determine the fate of Argentina’s long-term finances and the trajectory of its economy amid a global pandemic. Argentina’s Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán, has led the country’s efforts alongside President Alberto Fernández to find a pathway forward on debt discussions as the country also looks to its future macroeconomic prospects. 

What are the main points of agreement and divergence as Argentina and its creditors come up against an August 4 deadline? Beyond debt negotiations, what is Argentina’s plan for macroeconomic stability and investment promotion? What are the broader regional ramifications of Argentina’s macroeconomic trajectory?  

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, in partnership with its Global Business & Economics Program, on Thursday, July 30, 2020, from 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT (5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Buenos Aires), for a conversation on Argentina’s debt negotiation and the future of the country’s economy with H.E.
