Sergio Massa’s cabinet: how it was defined after the assumption

Serge Massa assumed this Wednesday as the new Minister of Economy of the Nation in a climate of uncertainty and expectations before the announcements that it will make, in what is the great opportunity of the Front of All to redirect the Government.

Yesterday, the former president of the Chamber of Deputies said goodbye to the legislature, urging everyone to “have humility, tolerance, capacity and courage to build consensus and state policies.” And the day before, he had received the support of the vice president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who received him in her office in the Senate and published a photo of that meeting.

Expectations before the new cabinet

The changes in the cabinet revived the management and generated good expectations in the markets, which await the new minister’s speech to learn more details about the direction the economy will take with his arrival.

For this, the results that Massa obtains in the short term will be decisive. For this reason, he already has a first international tour scheduled for the end of this month in which he will meet with the authorities of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Treasury Department in Washington; with investors and bondholders on Wall Street; and also, with the Paris Club.

Raúl Rigo, Secretary of the Treasury

The first confirmation came in the position of Treasury, with the name Raúl Rigo, a benchmark for Peronism, who participated in the economic team during the government of Néstor Kirchner and was part of the management of Martín Guzmán. Rigorous with public spending, Rigo is expected to order the public accounts, accumulate reserves and guarantee a fiscal balance.
