Javier Milei’s Rural Development Proposals and Potential Political Partnerships


Nov 21, 2023

Javier Milei, Argentina’s incoming president, has voiced his support for the agricultural sector and pledged to intervene in the market. The government will focus on shrinking the State and eliminating taxes to benefit this industry, which accounts for 70% of Argentina’s exports. To oversee agricultural policies, Milei appointed Fernando Vilella, an academic and former UBA dean, along with other professionals from the agricultural sector. Vilella presented a paper outlining policies needed for sustainable growth in production based on the bioeconomy. The Argentine Rural Society and Confederations have expressed support for Milei’s government and shared their hope for lowering or eliminating taxes to foster growth in the country’s agricultural sector.
