Guillermo Ferraro, president-elect Javier Milei’s pick for infrastructure minister, described Vaca Muerta as the “core” to plan freight transport in Argentina and announced two developments the La Libertad Avanza (LLA) administration is interested in pursuing: the North-Patagonian train and an aqueduct. In a TV interview, Ferraro laid out his vision for financing infrastructure during Milei’s upcoming administration. “Everything the private sector can do, the private sector will do,” he said. Freight trains will be one of their infrastructure priorities, and he used the Vaca Muerta shale oil field as an example. Since there is valuable cargo, an opportunity arises for the private sector, naturally.

The Argentine men’s national cricket team dominates the South American Cricket Championship, lifting it for a record 12th time in 2023, ten more than anyone else. Argentina is one of 96 associate members of the International Cricket Council (ICC), meaning that cricket is played there, but it does not qualify as a full member. “In those days, the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) used to visit with a team that was virtually the English national team. “We have important clubs that played cricket long ago and have grass and synthetic fields,” said Pereyra.

Pope Francis, who is suffering from lung inflammation, is in “good and stable” condition, receiving antibiotic therapy intravenously, and will limit his activities for the next few days in order to conserve his strength, the Vatican said on Monday. “The pope’s condition is good and stable, he does not have a fever and his respiratory condition is decidedly improving,” Bruni said. Bruni added that Francis, 86, would continue to carry out “easier”, institutional tasks, his condition permitting. On Saturday, a government source confirmed that Argentina’s outgoing President Alberto Fernández will not meet with the Pope this week.

Of that, 10 percentage points would correspond to recovering Central Bank interest-bearing liabilities (LELIQ and repo operations). On the contrary, the Central Bank uses these interest-bearing liabilities to regulate the monetary volume and short-term reference rates. Since the day after the runoff, Milei has been making comments about solving the problem of the central bank’s interest-bearing liabilities as soon as possible to enable the elimination of currency controls. However, of all the Argentine economy’s problems, interest-bearing liabilities are by no means the most important. If progress is made in that direction, the stock of interest-bearing liabilities will be reduced, thus making exchange rate unification possible.

Rodríguez was part of a an LLA team that met with the IMF following the libertarian economist’s victory in the August primaries. Today is the right time, given that Javier [Milei] has designated the Economy Minister and changed the president of the Central Bank.

The libertarian bested Peronist candidate and current Economy Minister Sergio Massa, winning 56% of the vote to Massa’s 44%. During the first presidential debate, Milei noted that he had since apologized to the spiritual leader of more than two-thirds of Argentines. On the home front, Milei unofficially confirmed a number of ministers and that his government will have just eight ministries, half of the current number. The latter two “Frankenstein’s ministries,” as we’ll call them, are both amalgamations of numerous current cabinet-level agencies.And what of Sergio Massa? Having appointed a four-person transition group to coordinate with Milei’s economy team, Massa later said that he would remain in office until Alberto Fernández’s term ends on December 10.
