Argentina Economy

Following the inauguration of President Mauricio Macri’s centre-right government in December 2015, the Argentine economy has embarked on a period of structural change propelled by increasingly liberalised policies. Under this leadership, the authorities have been rolling out various reforms to bring the country back onto the global stage, step up international competitiveness and accelerate GDP growth. After the 1.8% contraction in 2016, Argentina’s GDP expanded by 2.9% in 2017. Growth continued to accelerate in the first quarter of 2018 at a rate of 3.6% year-on-year (y-o-y), according to the National Institute of Statistics and Census. This chapter contains interviews with Daniel Funes de Rioja, B20 Chair; Mariano Mayer, Secretary of Entrepreneurship and Small and Medium Enterprises; and Luis Pagani, CEO, Arcor.
