Public Debt in Argentina

Argentina Public Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Argentina - Public Debt

Although still bleak, the economic panorama seems to be brightening somewhat. Activity plunged throughout Q1, as did industrial production. Runaway inflation and sky-high interest rates, together with plunging real retail sales, suggest consumer spending and investment activity remained in the doldrums. However, a weaker peso and growing agricultural production are supporting the ongoing external adjustment. Moreover, the month-on-month increase in consumer prices moderated in April after three months of acceleration, and April’s primary fiscal surplus followed Q1’s positive fiscal outturn. As October’s elections approach, the political landscape is heating up. In mid-May, ex-President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced she will run for vice-president on a ticket headed by her former cabinet chief Alberto Fernández. Given the presidential candidate’s moderate credentials, the risk of a return to radically interventionist policies seems less of a threat.
