Argentina will insist before the G20 for the revision of surcharges while negotiating with IMF

Sergio Chodos, Argentine representative at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), will participate on Tuesday in the first of the meetings of representatives of the G20 Economy that will take place in Jakarta, Indonesia, in the run-up to the first summit of Finance Ministers and Presidents of Central Banks of the G20 of the year, which will take place this Thursday. There, the Argentine government will insist with its demands to lower the IMF surcharges to countries with exceptional credits and give greater flexibility in financing to middle-income countries, in the context of the persistent pandemic and the definitive agreement that Argentina negotiates with the credit agency.

For his part, the Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán, announced that he will participate in the Summit virtually and that, instead, the Argentine director will attend in person before the IMF, which historically participated in the economic negotiations at the G20. The president of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce, will also participate in the meetings virtually from Argentina.Figures such as the managing director of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva, and the head of the Treasury, Yanet Yellen, key executives in the negotiations that Argentina is carrying out to reach a definitive agreement with the Fund, also announced that they will attend the traditional meetings remotely. Thus, on Tuesday begins the first meeting of the year in Indonesia, the host country of 2022, to begin to outline the draft of the document that will be discussed at ministerial level between Thursday and Friday, and where in addition to the G20 countries will participate other organizations such as the IMF, World Bank, OECD and invited countries.
