Argentine 2019 fiscal deficit target of 2.2 pct of GDP to be cut

BUENOS AIRES, May 24 (Reuters) - Argentine Treasury Minister Nicolas Dujovne said on Thursday that the country’s 2019 fiscal deficit target of 2.2 percent of gross domestic product will be cut, as part of the government’s renewed belt-tightening effort.

“We have yet to define what our objective will be for 2019 and 2020, it will most likely be something less than what we had thought until now,” Dujovne told reporters after being asked about next year’s deficit target.
