After the approval of the Bases bill, different entities came out to express their position.


In the automotive sector, the Chamber of Official Automotive Importers and Distributors (CIDOA) celebrated the progress of the Bases law in the Senate. Through a statement, he assured that “the Government is about to obtain the sanction of a law that allows it to adopt measures aimed at greater opening of the economy in general, and particularly in the automotive sector, providing Argentines with access to a more modern and competitive automotive market, with cutting-edge technological products in terms of active and passive safety and propulsion, under better price and credit conditions.”

The chamber – which has 30 associated brands that together have 8,600 employees, 116 dealerships and 311 workshops – noted that “Argentina’s vehicle fleet is at least 10 years behind due to import regulations that were in force until the previous government and the tax and tariff burdens that remain in force or increased, determining that the consumer price of a car in Argentina is much more expensive, up to 100% in some cases, than those paid anywhere. another country in the world.”

Likewise, this situation “opposes any attempt at modernization and healthy competition, and defeats the statement of ‘freedom’ shared by the majority of Argentines, by putting obstacles to an essential freedom of citizens, which is to choose. ”

In the statement, CIDOA proposes advancing in the “equality of opportunities and conditions among market actors, which is achieved with transparent regulations, free access to financial instruments and a reasonable and equitable tax burden. Even the global market offers opportunities in countries whose scale allows quality products to be obtained under conditions aligned with the objective of lowering prices in the domestic market.”

In that sense, he assures that “Facilitating access to automobiles in better conditions by reducing the tax and tariff burden will result in a benefit that can be shared by the treasury – due to a greater volume of sales – and from now on by the consumer. and, in our case, the importing companies, generally with national capital, that have persevered over the years enduring unbreathable economic climates, characterized by discriminatory and discretionary sectoral regimes.”
