During his stay in New York, Fernández met with Kristalina Georgieva, head of the IMF, after the international credit organization approved the second review of the agreement with Argentina. He did it after the tour of the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, through that country.
“We had an excellent meeting with President Fernandez in which we talked about the considerable progress we have made with our teams to reach an agreement at the technical level of the second review,” Georgieva said after the meeting.
“Also -he added- I expressed my appreciation for the very serious way in which Minister Massa and his team, also including the Central Bank, are addressing the significant challenges of Argentina”.
In this sense, he pointed out that “indications of this seriousness are the stabilization that the Argentine economy has experienced and the progress made in terms of rebuilding reserves, as well as the attention that has been given to the necessary political measures to be able to cope with inflation.
