Based mainly on archival sources, this article examines how after the overthrow of the Perón government Argentina adopted the multilateral system of trade and payments in its relations with Western Europe. It first outlines Argentina’s main problem in the external sector by late 1955 and the first decisions to abandon the bilateralism which had prevailed in its international economic relations.Then it traces the complex problems and negotiations which the new Argentine government overcame to adopt this policy. Finally analyses how after the launching of the economic stabilization plan of 1958 Argentina’s links with the Paris Club related with those established with the international financial institutions.The article is a contribution to the history of Argentina’s international economic relations in the late fifties. It also delves into the record of the first postwar liberals in Argentina when they were in public service during their early professional and political careers. // Este artículo examina con base en documentación de archivos, cómo tras el derrocamiento de Perón la Argentina adoptó el régimen multilateral de comercio y de pagos para sus relaciones económico-financieras con la Europa Occidental. Primero bosqueja los problemas del sector que enfrentaba la Argentina a fines de 1955 y las primeras decisiones para abandonar el bilateralismo predominante en sus relaciones económicas internacionales. Luego desarrolla las complejas negociaciones y problemas que el gobierno provisional superó para efectuar dicha política. Finalmente analiza cómo a partir del plan de estabilización económica de 1958 se interconectaron las relaciones de la Argentina con el Club de París y con los organismos financieros internacionales. El artículo es el capítulo inicial en la historia de las relaciones finacieras internacionales de la Argentina posperonista. Además delinea la trayectoria inicial en la función pública de personalidades de una primera generación de liberales de posguerra en el país.
