Valuable information for new investors coming to Argentina
When President Mauricio Macri was elected last year, he outlined a clear plan to integrate Argentina to the world. In his first six months, the President took several measures not only to normalize the economy, but also to rebuild trust and confidence. Some of these measures include: lifting currency restrictions, reaching an agreement with holdout creditors, lifting restrictions to capital inflow/outflow, returning to the international capital markets, removing or reducing export duties, gradually removing import restrictions, correcting exchange rates and subsidies, and reestablishing relations with countries that have traditionally been Argentina’s business and political partners.
The message is clear: Argentina is determined to normalize its economy and regain political leadership, not only in the region but also amongst emerging markets. Historically, Argentina´s investment case has rested on its abundant natural resources, talented and educated labor force, strong infrastructure, large middle class and a gateway position to the region. This time around, with the Argentine government’s main objective of Zero Poverty, it is vital that we go one step further. We must attract genuine investment, which in turn creates more and better quality jobs.
But we also need to attract the world’s best know-how across all sectors, to ensure continuous and sustainable growth. We kindly invite you to participate in this process and become a protagonist of this new era for Argentina. At the Argentina Investment and Trade Promotion Agency we want to help and enable your company to take full advantage of the many opportunities Argentina has to offer, and to become your strategic partner throughout your investment process in Argentina.
