Argentina’s state and local governments have returned to the international capital markets this year and have raised almost $2 billion so far.  With the completion of its second exchange offer, the Republic has now rescheduled 92% of the principal left over from its 2001 default, and its return to the international bond markets can only be a matter of time.  Is Argentina well-positioned to be received by the international financial community as a creditworthy borrower or does the Republic still have hurdles that it needs to clear? This Panel presentation will begin with the highlights of a briefing paper written by Prof. Porzecanski, "Argentina: Should It Be Welcomed Back?", which will be available for distribution to attendees.

This presentation is part of a continuing series of panels and presentations that EMTA is pleased to sponsor on various topics of interest to Emerging Markets investors and other market participants.
