Argentina hit by national strike against Macri reforms

BUENOS AIRES, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Shops were shuttered and the streets of Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires were quiet on Tuesday as the country’s largest union called a 24-hour strike to protest against the business-friendly policies of President Mauricio Macri’s government.

Argentina’s main agricultural export port of Rosario was closed by the strike, as was public transport services and private freight shippers, unions said. Financial markets were due to open as normal on Tuesday but traders said volumes were likely to be small. (Reporting by Jorge Otaola Editing by Daniel Flynn)
