From his first days in office, Peirano has expressed his
conviction that promoting and sheltering the growth of a deep
and diverse industrial base is fundamental to improving
Argentina's terms of trade. This package of new and as-yet
poorly-defined non-tariff barriers speaks to Peirano's
protectionist philosophy and to growing domestic concern over
the surge in Chinese imports (which, in this era of Chinese
prowess in the export of consumer goods, follows ineluctably
from the GoA's consumption-led economic recovery strategy).
This step also reflects domestic industry's share of the
pre-election pinata after the GoA's recent announcement of
cuts in consumer income tax liabilities and an increase in
pension payments.
