Argentinaâ€™s G20 Presidency Implications for the G20â€“Africa Partnership
The Institute for Global Dialogue, in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) hosted a seminar at the Burgers Park Hotel in Pretoria on July 3, 2018, on the theme â€œArgentinaâ€™s G20 Presidency: Implications for the Africaâ€“G20 Partnership.â€ The seminar sought to situate Argentinaâ€™s G20 presidency in the context of Latin America, and specifically its relations with the African continent. How will Argentinaâ€™s presidency frame Latin Americanâ€“African relations in the context of the G20 partnership with Africa? How can African stakeholders utilise Argentinian priorities to achieve their own development priorities? Will Argentina position itself as a key actor in bringing a cohesive Latin American perspective to the G20? In light of Buenos Airesâ€™ significance for South-South cooperation, what opportunities exist for advancing the interests of the Global South?
