Juan Manzur will travel to the US to meet with investors in the middle of negotiations with the IMF

The Chief of Staff, Juan Manzur, will travel to his first official mission to the United States to meet with investors in New York and with the Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán, who heads the delegation that negotiates a debt agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

As published Infobae, Guzmán himself invited Manzur to participate in a meeting with investors who own Argentine bonds, which will take place next Friday, after the formal meetings in Washington with IMF officials and with its head, the questioned Kristalina Georgieva.

Initially, Manzur – who has the endorsement of President Alberto Fernández for this geopolitical movement – is scheduled to travel this Wednesday. Thus, the Chief of Staff will seek to reinforce the team of officials who seek to unblock the agreement with the IMF, even if they do not participate directly in the formal meetings.

In addition to Guzmán, the president of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce, is also part of the delegation that today will meet with the staff of the international credit organization, led by Julie Kozack and Luis Cubeddu, to analyze the possibility of reaching an understanding around a new financial program to replace Stand By, negotiated by the Cambiemos government in 2018.

In this way, Guzmán will begin the intense activity that he plans to develop throughout the week in the US capital, within the framework of the Annual Assembly of the organization and the World Bank, as well as the summit of ministers of the G20 and the G24 , among other encounters.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, he will meet with Georgieva, based on the agenda released yesterday by the Ministry of Economy. First it will be at the G20 finance ministers summit, and then a solo meeting is planned, according to those close to the minister.
