Webcast Recap

On Friday, October 13, the Latin American Program's Argentina Project hosted a conversation with Ambassador Pedro Villagra Delgado, Argentina's Sherpa for the G-20.

Ambassador Villagra discussed the opportunities and challenges of the G-20 agenda from the perspective of Argentina, which holds the presidency beginning in December 2017 and will host the leaders’ summit to be held in Buenos Aires.

Argentina is one of only three Latin American G-20 members—alongside Brazil and Mexico—and the future host of only the second G-20 summit to be held in the region. Political developments in Washington have created new challenges for the G-20—an organization that requires consensus to address issues of global importance, such as climate change and trade. Ambassador Villagra is a career diplomat who has served at the Argentine mission to the United Nations and in senior positions at the foreign ministry, including vice foreign minister.
