Fernández orders new lockdown, even as recovery stumbles

On May 20th the president, Alberto Fernández, announced that most of the country would enter a stringent nine-day lockdown as coronavirus (Covid-19) cases reach new highs. The measure comes despite clear weaknesses in the latest economic data and reinforces our expectation of an only tepid recovery this year.

E-commerce booms in Argentina

Across the world the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly accelerated the shift from bricks-and-mortar retail to e-commerce. However, the pivot to digital has been especially rapid in Argentina, by both regional and global standards. A number of structural factors have facilitated robust e-commerce growth, including high rates of internet penetration, smartphone ownership and financial inclusion, and the recently promulgated Knowledge Economy Law will be conducive to the continued development of the online marketplace. Although e-commerce will remain dynamic in the near to medium term, its ability to live up to its potential will be constrained by deficiencies in macroeconomic policy writ large.

30-day ban on beef exports prompts backlash from farmers

On May 17th the government, led by Alberto Fernández of the left-wing Frente de Todos (FdT) Peronist coalition, announced a 30-day ban on beef exports in what appears to be an attempt—misguided, in our view —to boost domestic supply and put a lid on food price inflation. The move has been criticised fiercely by livestock producers, who have announced a nine-day strike, beginning on May 20th, in response.
