To address a faltering economy, Argentina chose a leader who has vowed to cut the state’s role drastically. However, international trade and investment demands substantial government involvement, and Buenos Aires can ill afford to jeopardise relations with a top trading partner like China.

Milei has advocated a variety of radical positions, including severing ties with China, that threaten to upend Argentina’s economy and diplomacy.
