The National Government announced days ago that extra tariffs will be implemented on the import of notebooks and tablets for the purpose of “strengthen the industrial sector in question”which raises the tax from zero to 8% and 16%, depending on the case, as of March 15. This was forcefully rejected by some sectors of the economy.
precisely, the Bolsa de Comercio de Córdoba issued a statement in which it maintains that it threatens the insertion in the rest of the world of the productive sector and therefore, decreases the generation of foreign currency. Also has price impactwhich will end up aggravating the situation as the inflation annual in 3 digits. Thus, they project that prices have already increased by up to 80 percent for this type of device, which is abundant in the market.
However, there are other sectors of the technological business community that defend the national measure. Such is the case of Guillermo Freund, president of the Electronics Commission of the Argentine Chamber of Electronic, Electromechanical and Lighting Industries (Cadieel), who stated: “We celebrate this measure for which we have worked for so long and we reaffirm the commitment of the manufacturers we represent, one of the most important values of our chamber, which represents most of the most important computer manufacturers in the country.”
“This type of measures They not only benefit the national industry, but also represent an improvement for final consumers, increasing the diversity of products on the market, both national and international brands, and generate a commercial offer, with adequate prices and financing conditions.which allow access to such a fundamental asset as computers to more and more sectors of the population“.
This economic sector indicates that until 2022, close to 25% of the notebooks marketed in the country were armed locally. In these first months of the year, national production reaches 40%, but with fewer sales due to lack of supply and with a retraction in consumption due to the sharp rise in prices.
