The province of Mendoza has delivered to the Argentine ruling coalition of president Mauricio Macri a much needed great stimulus with its landslide governorship victory.
The output of oil and gas in the Argentine province of Mendoza hit its lowest mark in ten years, contrary to what goes on in the rest of the country, local authorities have announced. The lack of calls for bids during previous administrations has been singled out as the cause of the poor results.
Argentina’s government has decided to ditch a proposed tax on wine after vineyards complained the measure would cripple the industry, the governor of the country’s top wine-making province said.
Argentina's opposition Radical Party (UCR) seized back Mendoza province (one of the country's five main electoral districts) after their Cambia Mendoza alliance, led by Alfredo Cornejo, defeated the Victory Front (FpV)’s Adolfo Bermejo, and had 48% of the vote at press time, 10 points more than the Peronist hopeful. Bermejo is a close ally of President Cristina Fernández.
