Production planning

Productive planning has experienced a resurgence worldwide in recent years, driven by factors such as growing global technological disputes and the great challenges posed by climate change.

Argentina has a new opportunity to embark on a path towards sustainable economic and social development. The country has significant potential in goods and services that will be in demand due to the energy transition, pursuit of sustainability, and emergence of the ‘4.0’ technological paradigm. These demands will exert an influence on various productive complexes, encompassing everything from natural resources to industry and the knowledge economy.

What does this mean? It requires a thorough overhaul of the production matrix based on a long-term strategy to foster growth, generate employment, and mitigate poverty and the environmental impacts of human activities.

We strive to build consensus and create the necessary conditions for a virtuous transformation of the production matrix. How? We achieve this by proposing public policies that take a comprehensive approach, examining the interdependencies among productive complexes and their relative contribution to national development. To develop these proposals, we conduct rigorous diagnostics in collaboration with various stakeholders, including productive entities, academia, policymakers, and civil society.

Our country has had a challenging struggle with development in recent decades, but we believe it is still possible to get back on the road to development. We have what it takes to construct a more prosperous, just, inclusive, and sustainable Argentina.
