after the setback suffered by the omnibus law and the unleashed war. with the governors.

"Each one will have different agendas, it is the same interest as in all the other countries where we invest...some will have bonds and are going to see if it is time to sell or not, others will be seeing if it is worth buying...they are all investors in bonds, mostly sovereign, there may be something corporate," they pointed out from an investment fund.

Barclays will arrive this Monday in Buenos Aires

and then the rest of the entities will join.

Next will be Jane Fraser, the CEO of Citibank, who will arrive next Friday.

HSBC executives will do so in the last week of February.

"The idea is to contact potential investors with businessmen and some authorities," one of the banks said.

"There is interest in rediscovering Argentina, although with great caution,"

they stated from the background.

Last week BlackRock bought

US$1.8 million of the Bopreal dollar bond

, with which the government seeks to regularize companies' commercial debt.

The operation became known after the meeting that Milei had virtually with Larry Fink, the CEO of the largest investment fund in the world.

governability and the population's tolerance for adjustment."

the administration should recalculate its political strategy,

opening the door to a more difficult period that could lead to greater volatility", which could impact the exchange rate gap.

The banks' research departments, in charge of organizing the trip, hope that their clients will be able to meet with the Minister of Economy, Luis Caputo, and his Secretary of Finance, Pablo Quirno, the head of the Central Bank, Santiago Bausili, and its vice president, Vladimir Werning.

However, from the largest international forum, they maintain that the trip is within the framework of visits that are organized every year to different countries in the region.

During a talk at the Miami Herbert Business School, prior to the fall of the Bases law, its architect Federico Sturznegger highlighted that "Argentina is an extraordinarily stable country, although not in economic or inflation terms."

And he predicted:

"The corporate state is a very difficult enemy to defeat
