G20: Fernandez questioned the IMF and proposed incorporating CELAC

At the G20 summit held in India, President Alberto Fernández questioned the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for “financial speculation” and proposed integrating the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) into the group. I welcome the accession of the African Union to this G20. It is a profoundly just act that allows us to know and attend to the needs of that wonderful continent. I hope that in the future the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, which faces problems similar to those facing Africa, can join this forum, “said the president minutes after Narendra Modi – Prime Minister of India – invited the president of the African Union, Azali Assoumani, to join as a permanent member. Before the G20, the Argentine president indicated that the country suffered “a fall in exports equivalent to three points of our GDP”, and then questioned the measures of the credit agency. “The IMF, to which we are indebted, clung to its dogmas and proved incapable of innovating with new solutions to face the catastrophe,” he said. Likewise, the head of state referred to the problems arising from climate change and determined that “most of the countries of the global south are environmental creditors.” In that sense, he added: “We were not the cause of such climate disruption. Even so, in all this time we put oxygen where others contaminated, but no one recognized our contribution.” “Count on Argentina to move towards a future where the chance of birth is not an indelible mark of inequality. Count on Argentina to build a more just, cooperative, peaceful and fraternal world. There is nothing ahead that matters more,” concluded Alberto Fernández.
