Argentina’s G20 Presidency Implications for the G20–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 “Argentina’s G20 Presidency: Implications for the Africa–G20 Partnership.” The seminar sought to situate Argentina’s G20 presidency in the context of Latin America, and specifically its relations with the African continent. How will Argentina’s presidency frame Latin American–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 Aires’ significance for South-South cooperation, what opportunities exist for advancing the interests of the Global South?
