In brief: Argentina’s inflation remains persistently high

* Argentina’s national statistics institute (Indec) has released the latest figures for the consumer price index (IPC), which show that monthly inflation totalled 4% in January – the same monthly figure as in December 2020. This brings annual inflation in January to 38.5%, up from 36.1% in December. These latest high figures drive home the need to implement policies that bring inflation under control, as President Alberto Fernández’s government advances efforts to keep prices from rising.
