Argentina’s plans for economic recovery in 2016

Back to News

Argentina has gone through a period of economic stagnation and will face challenges in 2016; however, there are high hopes that it will become a financially stable and attractive foreign investment opportunity within the next two years.

Argentina has gone through a period of economic stagnation and will face challenges in 2016; however, there are high hopes that it will become a financially stable and attractive foreign investment opportunity within the next two years. As a member of the G-20, Argentina can easily reach other participants and also acts as a regional voice for Latin America.

In August, Argentina brought in a new Civil and Commercial Code, which affects civil and commercial relations of natural and legal persons, and the entire local tax system. Changes are also expected for taxpayers’ domicile and ‘one-person corporations’ (SAU, by its acronym in Spanish). This highlights the need for a comprehensive tax reform that adapts national and provincial law.

Late last year, Argentina elected in President Mauricio Macri, who expressed his intentions to introduce multiple reforms that will help revive the economy, including:

  • Cuts in public spending to reduce inflation and regain investor confidence
  • Increasing competitiveness by promoting specific sectors and regions
  • Driving innovation and adopting new technologies
  • Encouraging the creation of new companies and jobs.


The National Institute of Statistics and Census of Argentina supports the government and says that in order to achieve economic progress in 2016, the focus needs to be on GDP, foreign trade, reducing poverty and generating employment.

Argentina is rich in resources, has a well-educated population and a more equal income distribution than most of its Latin American peers. However, as the business landscape is constantly changing, companies operating in Argentina are advised to have strong local understanding to navigate the diverse and complicated terrain, and make the most of available opportunities.
