Argentina Officially Takes Control of G-20 Presidency
Argentina took over the presidency of the G-20 for the first time during an event last week. During the event, President Mauricio Macri called on countries to “create basic consensus” to generate “inclusive growth”, while stressing that Argentina “inspires confidence” in the world because it goes “down the right path”.
“We want to be an expression of the entire region, we will demonstrate that we can join a global conversation without raising our voice in anger and without passively following the interests of others,” he said during his message of only 10 minutes.
Argentina hit the ground running as head of the G-20 last week with the first of a series of fifty meetings that will take place over the next twelve months in different cities of Argentina. The presidency will eventually culminate with the G-20 Summit to be held in the capital city of Buenos Aires where the 20 most important Heads of State in the world will meet.
