Argentina - Structural Adjustment Loan Project (English)

The Structural Adjustment Loan is intended to support the Argentine's government's structural reform program within a coherent medium-term framework over the 2001-2003 period. Loan objectives are to improve the quality, equity, and efficiency of social services and to reduce fiscal instability in the federal-provincial public sector. Such reforms are needed to secure sustainability of the economy. Expected benefits include: 1) improved fiscal stability across levels of gocvernment; 2) improved stability in the level of social services provided by the public sector especially those targeted to the poor; 3) improved efficiency, equity, and quality of health insurance services; 4) improved effectiveness of federal and provincial social protection programs in reaching the poor; 5) improved equity and financial sustainability of the national public pension system; and 6) improved efficiency of tax administration. One or two follow-up adjustment operations are planned within the medium-term framework, depending upon progress in implementing the continuing reform agenda.
