Mauricio Macri’s election in late 2015 sent shockwaves across the hemisphere and drew renewed attention to the country’s investment possibilities. For the last several years the nation’s oil and gas sector and particularly unconventional potential and role of national oil company YPF have received a great deal of attention. But, issues such as the rule of law and federal and provincial coordination were imprecise.
More broadly, management of the oil and gas industries in Argentina has been historically characterized by political and economic swings of the pendulum: from periods of investor-friendly policies to phases of government controls and market and price restrictions. Policy-making in the oil and gas sectors can be highly politicized and vulnerable to the country’s personalized governing style, centered on the figure of the president and the powerful governors from resource-producing provinces.
Join us for a webinar discussion on “Argentina’s Oil & Gas Sector” with Patricia Vasquez, the author of a recent Woodrow Wilson Center report on the topic of Argentina’s Oil & Gas sector and particularly issues of Federalism and the rule of law. The webinar will be held Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00am San Diego (GMT/UTC – 8 hours).
Vasquez’s formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
