The President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, met with Argentine President, Alberto Fern谩ndez, on November 15, on the occasion of the G20 summit in Bali. The leaders agreed to extend a foreign exchange agreement for US$ 5 billion (equivalent to 35 billion yuan), increasing international reserves and speeding up Chinese disbursements earmarked for the construction of two dams in the Latin American country.

The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) celebrated a decade of operations in Argentina. At the event, the president of the Central Bank of the Argentine Republic (BCRA), Miguel Pesce, took the opportunity to announce the implementation of the Bank Clearing System of the Chinese entity, allowing the bank to start correspondent operations in yuan with local financial institutions. This is a great step forward for the expansion of trade relations between the People’s Republic of China and Argentina.
