"I stressed my strong support for Argentina's reforms to date, and expressed the Fund's readiness to continue to assist the government. Minister Dujovne has requested that our teams work together toward a high access Stand-By Arrangement in support of the authorities' comprehensive economic program.

"I have briefed the IMF's Executive Board on the progress we have made and I have instructed the IMF team to continue discussions toward a Fund-supported program. Minister Dujovne and I agreed that our shared goal is to reach a rapid conclusion of these discussions."
