In August, Standard and Poor's downgraded Argentina's debt rating five points below investment grade and Moody's revised its debt outlook from positive to stable. Following several months of farmer strikes; a vote by the Vice President to end President Kirchner's export tariff increase; growing financial dependence on Venezuela; Wall Street concerns of default scenarios; and just recently, President Kirchner's willingness to repay its public debt to the Paris Club, this event will provide an opportunity for a timely analysis.
The event focused on Argentina's impact throughout Latin America, and specifically examined Argentina's investment climate, food supply and commodity prices, and energy polices on other Latin American countries. The discussion also highlighted the current developments and milestones in President Kirchner's presidency.
