Last week there was a meeting between governors from all over the country and the Minister of Economy, Martin Guzman, so that they know how the talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in view of the agreement they seek to achieve from the National government. However, next Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. the same exhibition will take place in the Congress of the Nation, where Joseph Louis Espert and other Members will discuss this.
Specifically, the economist asked in LN+ that “there be no sarasa” in what the leader presents, since if not from Liberty advances, your party, they will reject it. In addition, he recalled that “the agreement with the body is very serious” since they are “50 pages of pure number that cannot have anything.” In this way, the expectations of the liberal official are low as happened in previous negotiations.
It should be remembered that the last two meetings that the Government of Alberto Fernández had with the IMF did not have a good result final. The first occurred in October 2021, when they asked the agency to remove the flight attendant to the interests and they rejected his request although from the Casa Rosada they assure that this did not really happen but that they never gave an answer.
The second situation is closer and occurred just after the rejection of the Budget 2022. The Minister of Economy held a virtual meeting with the board of directors of the association and explained the reasons rejection in Congress. After this, the Government announced that the refusal of the deputies interceded in all that progress had been made in the negotiations and that now the outlook was adverse.
Once Tuesday’s meeting is over, they are expected to contact kristalina Georgieva, director of the IMF, to try to obtain a long-term agreement that skips the next due date in March. Meanwhile, Espert warned that “they will only approve the project if it solves any of the problems of the Argentines» so they could even get a rejection now if they are not convinced by the proposal.
