Date & Time

Nov. 15, 2023
2:00pm – 3:00pm ET


Online Only


Minister of Economy Sergio Massa and lawmaker Javier Milei have two vastly different visions for the future of Argentina. Voters are more motivated than ever, driven by inflation, high poverty rates, high interest rates, and capital controls. The candidates share distinctively different views for the future of the country, the third-largest economy in Latin America and the one with the highest International Monetary Fund debt.  Please join us for a conversation with former President Mauricio Macri of Argentina and former President Iván Duque Márquez of Colombia to discuss the implications of Sunday's election for Argentina and for regional dynamics in South America. 

This event will be in Spanish.

Acompáñenos a una conversación con el Ex presidente Mauricio Macri de Argentina y el Ex presidente Iván Duque Márquez de Colombia para discutir las implicaciones de las elecciones del domingo para Argentina y la dinámica regional en América del Sur.
