Productive Policy

The discussion on productive development in Argentina, with its pendular nature, has been overshadowed in the policy agenda by the urgency of current problems. However, today the country’s growth cannot be considered without an ambitious productive development strategy in the medium and long term.

Added to this is one of the great challenges of this century: the tension between economic growth and the environment. Sustainability is a fundamental component of the productive policies of the 21st century and a growth strategy needs to incorporate it.

What does this mean? It is essential to adapt and take advantage of this context: Argentina has a great opportunity to exploit its potential. The country has a long productive trajectory that is reflected in the capabilities and knowledge in various sectors.

We work to generate innovation, prosperity and more and better jobs. How? We identify emerging sectors and niches in which Argentina has the opportunity to insert itself internationally. We devise strategies to transform traditional sectors, improve and modernize existing policies and regulations, and strengthen the state capacities that drive this transformation.

Today more than ever, Argentina’s path to development needs policies that enhance and build productive capacities.
