Project Description

The development objectives of First Inclusive Growth Programmatic Development Policy Financing Project for Argentina are the following: (i) strengthening the foundations for private sector-led growth; and (ii) strengthening the social safety net and enhancing fiscal equity. Stabilizing the economy and restoring investor confidence is a primary concern of the Government. The DPF series complements and reinforces these stabilization efforts by supporting measures that tackle distortions and level the playing field for private sector-led growth, which are important measures to help sustain and increase potential growth.
