Editor: Institute of the Americas Descripción: 22 p. ilus.Tema(s): Energía - Subsidios | Gas Natural - Subsidios | ArgentinaClasificación CDD: 333.823.3 Recursos en línea: Haga clic para acceso en línea | Haga clic para acceso en línea Resumen: One of the biggest challenges that the Macri administration faced when it took office in December 2015, was to tackle subsidies (especially in energy) without producing a social disturbance. Confronting subsidies was particularly urgent and challenging as it had to be done in a context of historically high tax burden, growing fiscal deficit of about 6% of GDP, a poverty rate around 30% and one of highest inflation rates in the world. The broader efforts aimed at normalization of the energy sector were critical particularly because of the strategic importance that a competitive, self-supplied energy market has at a political, economic and social level. The urgency was even more pronounced in the case of natural gas, given that although the electricity network has greater coverage in terms of area and users, about 80% of the generation of electricity is produced by natural gas turbines, making Argentina highly dependent on this hydrocarbon.
