    Argentina: Approval of reform bills triggers markets

    The president Mauricio Macri administration expects the economy to grow around 3% this year following a 2.2% percent contraction in 2016.

    Merval, the main index of the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange, rose 1.51% Thursday, closing at 28,494.01 points - close to exceeding the maximum of the year, by 28,500 points. The Argentine stocks were driven by the approval of the pension and tax reforms passed this week in the House of Representatives.
