Population in Argentina
Argentina - PopulationEconomic activity plunged throughout Q4 2018, hit by sky-high interest rates, a contraction in credit, soaring inflation and downbeat consumer confidence. December’s fall in economic activity was a familiar story, characterized by a contraction in most sectors. Nevertheless, shrinking domestic demand, coupled with growing agricultural output and the delayed effects of a weaker peso, are leading to a notable external adjustment. In January, the trade balance remained in surplus for the fifth consecutive month, while the primary surplus widened notably in annual terms in the same month, following a notable reduction in the primary deficit in 2018. On the political front, in late February, President Macri announced the government would extend USD 2.6 billion in loans to private companies at favorable interest rates, in a bid to cushion the ongoing credit crunch.
