Milei’s government will focus on reducing the state and eliminating taxes to support the agricultural sector, which accounts for 70% of Argentina’s total exports. The president-elect has promised to intervene in the market and remove withholdings. To oversee agricultural policies, he has appointed Fernando Vilella, an academic and former dean of UBA, along with other professionals from the agricultural sector.
Vilella presented a paper outlining the key policies needed for the agricultural sector to increase production and become more sustainable based on the bioeconomy. The Argentine Rural Society and Confederations have expressed their support for Milei’s government and his intentions to work together to make significant changes in current agricultural policies. They hope for lower taxes and growth in the country’s agricultural sector soon.
