Argentina: Economic Outlook

The Argentine economy is a high-income one and it is South America’s 3rd largest. The country is bestowed with a huge amount of minerals, a high literacy rate, a dynamic export-centric agricultural sector, and a diverse industrial base.

However, the country’s economic stability has been rather shaky historically, with periods of high growth followed by severe recession.

Argentina still maintains a relatively high quality of life and a high per capita GDP. It’s an emerging market and it is also acknowledged as a major G-20 economy. Its economic growth is predicted to strongly rebound this year and in 2018, as reforms have been implemented recently in the labor and product markets to gain traction, and exports are strengthening. Investment too, is expected to spiral positively because of an improved business climate and infrastructural development.

Inflation, however, continues to remain high, but it is also expected to decrease as the government’s monetary policy remains restrictive, administrative price effects increase, and the peso’s depreciation wears off. This strong growth is also expected reduce unemployment gradually.

Argentina’s economy had started becoming increasingly isolated due to trade barriers that were set up in the past. On the positive, though, these are being eliminated gradually. Moreover, with the improvement of active policies pertaining to the national labor market, and as training is being offered to substantially help workers adjust to this changing economy, it is increasing national productivity as well.
