    In May, the Argentine President, Mauricio Macri, made one of Latin America’s most ambitious state visits to China – during which he held talks with President Xi Jinping.

    In an on-the-record FCCC event, Argentina’s Ambassador to China, Diego Ramiro Guelar will brief members about the results of this visit – what were the commitments and the agreements signed?

    Ambassador Guelar will also take a look at Latin America’s strengthening ties with China as it emerges as a global “superpower”.

    He will offer his insight into questions such as why Latin America is actively participating in the Belt and Road initiative? What is the meaning of Argentina and Chile’s presence at the first OBOR Summit in Beijing? What do Chinese investments mean for the Argentina’s energy, transport and construction markets?

    Finally, as Argentina is a current member of the G-20-Troika, alongside China and Germany, and will host the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires in 2018, Ambassador Guelar will explain how these three countries are working together to further the G-20 agenda.

    The event will be followed by an Argentine barbecue.

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

    Diego Ramiro Guelar has had a long diplomatic career in central destinations: he was Argentine Ambassador to the European Union, Brazil, two periods in the United States and finally in the People’s Republic of China, his current position, since March 2016.
