Antonio Cafiero

Antonio Francisco Cafiero (born 12 September 1922) is an Argentine Justicialist Party politician.

Cafiero was born in Buenos Aires. He studied at the University of Buenos Aires and became an accountant in 1944, and a Doctor in Economic Sciences in 1948. He was involved in political activity since he entered the university. As a militant Peronist, from 1962 he held offices in the National Justicialist Movement, in different institutions within the Justicialist Party at the national level and in Buenos Aires Province.

Cafiero served several presidential administrations. He was the Minister of Foreign Trade under Juan Peron (19521954). During Peron's last term, he was the Secretary of Commerce (1974). After Peron's death and his replacement by his wife, Vice-President Isabel Peron, Cafiero was appointed Federal Interventor of Mendoza Province (19741975), and as Ambassador to the European Economic Community and Belgium (1975), before his appointment as Economy Minister, in August. Cafiero grappled with the aftermath of the June 1975 Rodrigazo, economic shock treatment enacted by a predecessor, with no success, and he was dismissed in February 1976, serving briefly as Ambassador to the Holy See (until the March 1976 coup).
