新华社华盛顿8月26日电国际货币基金组织总裁格奥尔基耶娃26日表示,她与阿根廷总统费尔南德斯的会谈“非常具有建设性和积极意义”。


格奥尔基娃说:“我今天与费尔南德斯总统进行了非常有建设性和积极的对话。”她指出,费尔南德斯已通知IMF阿根廷请求与IMF达成新的基金协议。


“我们讨论了阿根廷面临的重要挑战,包括在全球大流行的背景下,以及阿根廷政府在未来一段时间的优先事项,特别是重振经济的需要,同时继续保护最脆弱的群体,”Georgieva在一份声明中说。


拉加德说,她期待与阿根廷深化对话,讨论"我们如何能最好地支持政府的努力,以控制疫情的影响,推动增长和创造就业,减少贫困和失业,同时加强宏观经济稳定"。


阿根廷周三开始与国际货币基金组织进行正式谈判,协商一项新的贷款协议,以取代2018年年中签署的贷款协议,该协议是560亿美元救助计划的一部分。


阿根廷和国际货币基金组织在2018年年中就援助达成了一项备用协议,阿根廷已经收到了441亿美元的援助款项。


国际货币基金组织在2月份表示,它“评估阿根廷的债务是不可持续的”,该国需要一个明确的计划,可能需要私人债权人做出有意义的贡献,以帮助恢复债务的可持续性。


阿根廷政府曾表示,将寻求与国际货币基金组织达成新的协议,在该国经济企稳并出现正增长时开始偿还贷款。

 

WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said Wednesday that her conversation with Argentine President Alberto Fernandez was "very constructive and positive".

"I had a very constructive and positive conversation with President Fernandez today," Georgieva said as she noted that Fernandez has notified IMF of Argentina's request for a new fund agreement with IMF.

"We discussed the important challenges faced by Argentina, including in the context of the global pandemic, and the Argentine government's priorities in the period ahead, in particular the need to reinvigorate the economy, while continuing to protect the most vulnerable," Georgieva said in a statement.

The IMF chief said she looks forward to deepening the dialogue with Argentina on "how we can best support the government's efforts to manage the impact of the pandemic, jumpstart growth and job creation, and reduce poverty and unemployment while strengthening macroeconomic stability."

Argentina began formal talks with IMF on Wednesday to negotiate a new lending agreement to replace the one signed in mid-2018 as part of a 56 billion U.S. dollar bailout.

Argentina and IMF agreed on a stand-by deal in mid-2018 for the bailout, of which the country has received about 44.1 billion dollars in disbursements.

The IMF said in February that it "assesses Argentina's debt to be unsustainable," and the country needs a definitive plan which could require a meaningful contribution from private creditors to help restore debt sustainability.

The Argentine government had said that it would seek a new agreement with IMF to begin repayments when the country's economy stabilizes and sees positive growth.
