BUENOS AIRES, July 2 (Xinhua) -- Argentine Economy Minister Martin Guzman on Saturday submitted his resignation from the post he has held since December 2019.

"With deep conviction and confidence in my vision of the path that Argentina should follow, I will continue working and acting for a fairer, freer, and more sovereign homeland," he said in a letter to President Alberto Fernandez.

"I have dedicated my adult life to building a vision and capabilities to lead a process of normalizing the function of Argentina's economy, which for so long has been characterized by patterns that generate uncertainty and anguish for millions of our compatriots," he said.

Guzman's tenure was characterized by the optimal development of debt negotiations with external private creditors as well as with the International Monetary Fund.

He was also known for carrying out an economic program that emphasized correcting the fiscal deficit and strengthening the local debt market.
