After lifting currency controls and trade barriers within the first month of taking office Dec. 10, Argentina’s economy may expand as much as 3 percent in the second half of 2016 from a year earlier with an expected growth rate of between 0.5 percent and 1 percent for the full year. The government will cut spending at a pace that will not imperil its ability to govern, Prat-Gay said in an interview in Davos where he is attending the World Economic Forum.
