Argentina’s Economy Minister Initiates Discussions with IMF for a New Debt Agreement, According to Local Media Source “The Mighty 790 KFGO”

In a recent interview with local broadcaster La Nacion+, Argentine Economy Minister Luis Caputo announced that the government will soon begin talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a new debt program. Caputo emphasized that the government has not sought any private sector financing and will focus solely on negotiations with the IMF.

Despite the challenges faced by Libertarian President Javier Milei in dealing with a severe economic crisis characterized by high inflation and consistent depreciation of the local currency, the peso, there have been some positive developments. The IMF has acknowledged that Argentina has met program targets with satisfactory margins in April.

Caputo also stated in the interview that he anticipates the government achieving a fiscal surplus in April, pending the release of official budget data. This follows the successful achievement of a fiscal surplus during the first quarter of the year. Earlier this month, there was a preliminary agreement between IMF staff and Argentine authorities to release $800 million in loans, prompted by positive government spending figures in the first three months of the year. However, this agreement is still pending approval by the IMF executive board.
