In brief: Argentina

* A team from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) headed up by Roberto Cardarelli arrived in Argentina on 8 May “in the context of the fourth review of Argentina’s economic plan that supports the 36-month Stand-By Agreement". During the mission, the IMF team will meet officials from the Argentine government and the central bank (BCRA), as well as representatives of the private sector, academia, and civil society. Alejandro Werner, the director of the Western Hemisphere Department at the IMF, will also join a part of the mission. Last month the IMF concluded and approved the third review of the US$57bn Stand-By Agreement (SBA) that it signed with the Argentine government last year.
