The inauguration of the US Secretary of Commerce, Gina Raimondo, came with disturbing news for Argentina: she anticipated global tariffs changes in the short term. Argentina achieved quotas for steel exports of 180,000 tons complied with and that enter without paying tariffs. The same applies to aluminium, which shipped without restrictions. It maintained until now. For Argentina, this means total exports of $700 million. That is what is at stake if this preference is modified.
