Argentina will address the future of work, infrastructure and food security, President Mauricio Macri said Thursday.
The South American country has long suffered the consequences of a fractured world, Macri said at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.
"The decades we have been isolated from the world but Argentina is now entering a new phase and we are now in the position to play a significant role on the international stage," he said.
"In the last two years, we put in order our economy and the country back on track. Argentina is on a sustainable and steady path of inclusive growth — every day we make decisions that drive us towards our primary goal of reducing poverty."
Argentina's economy started its recovery under the leadership of President Mauricio Macri, a former real estate developer who took office in 2015 just as the country was heading into a recession. It exited its recession in the second half of 2016.
Today, the stock market is booming but the wider economy still faces challenges. Argentina's central bank is trying to tame high inflation, of almost 25 percent, but revised its interest rate target higher to 15 percent Tuesday, giving it room to continue to slowly lower interest rates that are currently around 27 percent. The central bank expects the interest rate to go down to 5 percent in 2019.
