The newly elected President of Argentina, Javier Miley, has pledged his support for the agricultural sector, promising to eliminate detentions and intervene in the market. His government will focus on shrinking the state and eliminating taxes in favor of the agricultural sector, which represents 70% of Argentina’s total exports.
To oversee agricultural policy, Miley chose Fernando Villela, an academic and former dean of UBA, along with other professionals from the agricultural sector. Villela presented a document outlining the main policies needed for the agricultural sector to increase production and become more sustainable based on the bioeconomy.
The Argentine Rural Society and the Argentine Rural Confederations have expressed support for the Miley government and its intention to work together to radically change the current agricultural policy. They call for the reduction and elimination of taxes and hope that the country’s agricultural sector will soon grow.
