The economists, who will arrive Monday, aim to "gather information and exchange opinions with government officials, members of the private sector, members of Congress and civil organizations," according to a statement from the Ministry of Finance.
Monday will mark the Fund's resumption if its Article IV missions -- in which it assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the economies of each member country every year -- to Argentina after a 10-year hiatus.
