Argentina Warns Trump About Protectionism

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Argentina, which is poised to take over the leadership of the G20 group of developed and developing nations later this year, has warned Donald Trump that protectionist trade strategies do not work. Nicolás Dujovne, the country’s finance minister, said that Argentina’s own recent anti-free trade policies showed that closing borders did more harm than good. “We’ve been there,” Dujovne told the Guardian. “Protectionism and nationalism will not make your economy richer and will not accelerate growth. It will increase stagnation and poverty.”
