After the last release Staff report It became clear how difficult the negotiations between the fund’s economic team and IMF technical experts were. For the market, a new agreement with the fund is essential, because in this plan, it is assumed that the raising of shares will take an important place, and eventually, the company will have to provide additional new funds. “Negotiations with the fund and signals from the government as measures to raise stocks are two other things that will dominate market sentiment,” the bank analyst said.

Economy Minister Luis Caputo took a step in that direction yesterday, albeit perhaps somewhat narrowly. Off the agenda, the officer was sent to Congress Progress of Budget 2025 In this, it confirmed the devaluation rate and fiscal surplus till the end of the year and reaffirmed the result of PAIS tax for the next year as stated in the tax law.
