IEA chief praises Argentina’s reforms

By Staff reporter 22 March 2017

The head of the International Energy Agency (IEA) has hailed Argentina’s efforts to implement market-friendly energy reforms.

"Argentina […] is undertaking impressive domestic energy reforms and assuming the G20 presidency in 2018, thereby raising its profile in global energy governance," IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol was quoted as saying in Berlin on Tuesday.

Birol signed an agreement with Argentine Energy Minister Juan José Aranguren on Monday that will deepen the relationship between the organisation and the Latin American country.
