The Minister of Economy, Silvina Batakis, will carry out this Monday and Tuesday an intense agenda of activities in Washington that include meetings with the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgieva, authorities from the United States Department of the Treasury, the World Bank and investors.
Batakis, together with the Deputy Minister of Economy, Karina Angeletti, will arrive in the US capital at noon and in the early afternoon will hold his first working meeting with Ambassador Jorge Argüello, at the diplomat’s residence.
The meeting with Kristalina Georgieva will take place this Monday from 12:45 p.m. (Washington time, 1:45 p.m. in Argentina) at the headquarters of the multilateral credit organization, in what will be the first face-to-face meeting that both will maintain after the virtual contact they had on the 6 last July, after the official was sworn in as the new head of the Palacio de Hacienda.
The agenda with the IMF also includes a working lunch with Ilan Goldfajn, director of the multilateral organization for the Western Hemisphere; Luis Cubeddu, head of the Mission for Argentina; and Julie Kozack, Deputy Director of the Western Hemisphere Department, who will step down at the end of August to serve as Deputy Director in the IMF’s European Department.
