View: We maintain our cautiously optimistic view on the Argentine port sector. The country enjoys a good commodities mix but continues to struggle with external headwinds as well as internal difficulties such as rising inflation and labour unrest. Weaker private consumption will dampen imports while a weaker exchange rate will marginally improve the competitiveness of exports, with knock-on effects for port volumes.

Argentina's economic recession will persist in 2015, and will be deeper than we previously anticipated due to very weak private consumption and gross fixed capital formation. Argentine real GDP will contract in 2015 due to tepid private consumption and fixed investment growth. We forecast real GDP growth of -0.7% in 2015, a downward revision from our prior forecast of -0.3% growth. This will follow estimated growth of -0.5% in 2014, which we have also revised down from our previous expectation for a 0.2% expansion.
