Coronavirus , multibillion dollar debt, inflation, poverty - the new government faces a host of challenges. A debate in the capital.

Coronavirus , multibillion dollar debt, inflation, poverty - the new government faces a host of challenges. Will President Fernandez’s team be able to turn the tide, and see the highly-educated, resource-rich, vast and fertile Republic of Argentina return to prosperity? What about Falklands/Las Malvinas? And plans to legalise abortion in the Pope’s home country? Jonny Dymond and a panel of politicians discuss the fascinating future of Argentina.

The panel:
Juan Grabois: Leader of the Confederación de Trabajadores de la Economía Popular (CTEP) and Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace
Camila Crescimbeni: Member of the Chamber of Deputies of Argentina and President of PRO Youth
Fernanda Vallejos: Member of the Chamber of Deputies of Argentina and President of the Finance Commission
Ivan Petrella: Writer on Politics and Theology and Former Secretary of Federal Integration and International Cooperation at the Ministry of Culture

Producer: Charlie Taylor
