Transport & Infrastructure

Investing in transport infrastructure could boost Argentina’s overall economy, given the sector’s growing contribution to GDP. In 2017 the transport and communications sector represented 8.1% of GDP compared to 7.3% in 2016, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Census. The government has demonstrated its intent on improving the transport sector, with ample investment and PPP opportunities present. Enhancing the connectivity of local industries to principal logistical hubs by road, railway, river and/or air will inevitably improve regional economies and stimulate Argentina’s overall economic and social development. This chapter features interviews with Guillermo Dietrich, Minister of Transport; and Ezequiel Lemos, President, Trenes Argentinos Cargas.
