Primary deficit reached $2.15 bn in September

According to data from the Ministry of the Economy, primary spending rose by 71.6% year-on-year in nominal terms, while income increased by 34.3%. This dynamic corresponds to the enormous transitory fiscal effort in an exceptional context of the pandemic, necessary to implement measures for the care of families, employment, production and to compensate for the fall in revenue of the provincial administrations.
