Argentine president Mauricio Macri invited Queen Maxima to attend the gala evening to kick off the G20 summit in Buenos Aires on Friday evening. The Dutch Queen was invited in her role as special advocate for the Secretary General of the United Nations in the area of inclusive financing, ANP reports.
