Argentina - Money

Recent data suggest that the positive momentum in Argentina’s economy carried over from Q1 into Q2. In June, economic activity accelerated for the fifth straight month and consumer confidence sustained the upward trend that has been in place since the beginning of 2015 in August. Nevertheless, exports continued to record double-digit contractions mainly reflecting a slowdown in China and lower commodity prices. Following Daniel Scioli’s win in the primary presidential elections last month, recent opinion polls show that voter preferences have not changed much ahead of the 25 October elections. Scioli has pledged to continue the current government’s popular welfare programs while also promising gradual reforms towards more open markets. Adding to that, dwindling reserves will likely prompt the next government to seek a deal with the holdouts in order to regain access to international capital markets.
