    What I gather is that bureaucrats of the World Bank are good spending other peoples money. The US will block the credits.

    I hope the UK block any money to Argentina.

    They must learn to pay debts, not get hand outs

    Its all due to China playing a clever hand, like loan sharks, you dont not pay China, as they take land or crucial assets

    Its not the approvals that count its the disbursements. Argentina has lots of projects approved at IDB but not a penny has been disbursed.
    The USA will continue to thwart their efforts for the foreseeable future.

    “Argentina's position was explained by Economy minister Axel Kicillof who said that in the past ten years the country has gone through an historical process of development based on employment and production.”

    And they fell for it!

    Another 'win' for the won decade! Ha, ha, ha.

    6. They just wanted them to stop whining and crying. They won't see a cent. In Feb 15 the IMF will censure them and put them on the path to expulsion. The WB IMF IFC etc etc all depend on “good standing” with the IMF before they can loan.
    So, this is just more meaningless PR lies.

    The do gooders once again try to give away OPM. They are pros at it to say the least. Don't fret though, not a centavo will reach Argentina while Goofy and the gang are there.

    I would imagine you're correct, but strange things happen and perhaps more money will go down the drain as a never ending story...

    I hope, dear gentlemen, that you will thoroughly enjoy this news, in harmony as it is with your most delicate and sincere inner feelings. China´s, on this very matter, are even better.

    “The World Bank will be supporting Argentina in reaching the most vulnerable in society, especially in the lowest income areas of the country”

    Argentina Plans Latin America's Tallest Building, will reportedly require a $300 million investment and a construction period of five years.

    Architectural plans released Wednesday depict it as being in the shape of Argentina's map while an outdoor stadium for 15,000 people at ground level is shaped like the map of the Falkland Islands. The British territory in the South Atlantic is claimed by Argentina, which calls it Las Malvinas.

    9. I am very sure IFC can't lend to a country declared in default.
    This ridiculous PR is more worthless wind out of the corrupted regime in BA.
