Investments in Argentina: Buenos Aires as a Global City

Martín Lousteau, Ambassador of Argentina to the United States

We will live stream this program at 12:20 p.m. CT


Argentina is charting a new course. Since the election of Mauricio Macri as president in 2015, the country has begun moving away from populist policies and towards free-market strategies. By cutting export taxes, halting currency controls, and devaluing the peso, Macri is trying to boost growth, improve the business environment, and win back international market confidence. Yet will these reforms be enough to overcome the legacy of protectionist policies? Join the Council on Global Affairs and Ambassador Lousteau for a discussion of Argentina’s economic reforms and the way ahead for international investments in the country.
