Argentina’s finance minister makes sudden exit


Argentina’s economy minister, Martin Guzmán, has resigned as the country’s economic crisis intensifies.

Mr Guzman had been in office since late 2019 and led negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over the restructuring of Argentina’s debt.

He called for “a political agreement within the governing coalition” to choose his successor.

Argentina is struggling with 60% inflation and a weak currency, as well as global food and energy price rises.
