Argentina’s Macri to ask more of exporters

Argentine President Mauricio Macri said on Monday that the government would ask exporters, who have benefited from a sharp depreciation in the peso currency, to contribute more to the country’s fiscal accounts as it aims to cut its budget deficit.

In a television address, Macri did not specify what measures the government would take, but said that while export taxes were “a bad tax”, the current moment is an “emergency.” Treasury Minister Nicolas Dujovne was expected to announce details of policy changes later on Monday.
