Argentina - Country Partnership Framework for the Period FY19-FY22 (Spanish)

This Country Partnership Framework (CPF) outlines how the World Bank Group (WBG) will accompany Argentina’s path to reduce macroeconomic instability while setting the stage for poverty reduction through private sector led growth. The objectives selected for the CPF are closely linked to the priorities identified in the recent Argentina Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD), which analyses key constraints to inclusive and sustainable growth and poverty reduction and suggests ways to address them. They also reflect the fact that Argentina’s Gross National Income (GNI) per capita is above the Graduation Discussion Income, and that WBG’s new financing will be focused to support the country’s sustainable graduation path from IBRD. At the same time, the Government has expressed a preference to retain, in principle, access to the entire range of WBG instruments. This CPF covers the four-year period FY19-FY22. As Argentina’s presidential and legislative elections are to be held in October 2019, the Progress and Learning Review (PLR) will provide an opportunity to assess progress of reforms, revisit priorities, and reflect changes to the CPF program as needed. Argentina’s institutional constraints have persistently prevented the country from sustaining high-income levels; assisting the country to address them is a key focus of the CPF. Permanently overcoming the cycles of economic volatility that have precluded sustained growth and shared prosperity will require addressing the significant institutional constraints that are holding the country back. Given this, the Country Partnership Framework’s Focus Areas are: (i) supporting Argentina in securing access to long-term private financing on a sustainable basis; (ii) addressing key institutional constraints for better governance and service delivery; and (iii) supporting Argentina to implement its climate-related Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
