Although Argentina has the required capacity to implement PPPs since the late 1980s and early 1990s and has had a PPP law in place since 2001, public procurement remains to be the primary means of investment in most sectors. This trend is changing, with the number of PPP projects in Argentina decreasing in recent years as the government has prioritized state-led ventures. With this decline, the 2014 EIU Latin America & Caribbean Infrascope categorized Argentina’s PPP readiness as nascent, placing it in the bottom two within the region.
The government called upon the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) to help resolve a series of disputes related to bidding processes. Nevertheless, currency-exchange, capital-flow and import restrictions have worsened the investment climate and consequently, dissuaded private investment in infrastructure.
