He said he expected Argentina’s economy as a whole to expand 5% to 6% during the year, based on preliminary data and depending on how the novel coronavirus evolves and its impact on growth. The latest poll of economists by the central bank showed expectations of 6.2% economic growth in 2021. The economy contracted 10% last year.
