The government formalised through Decree 622/21 a new budget modification and incorporated US$ 4.334 billion corresponding to the special drawing rights (SDRs) granted by the International Monetary Fund into the National Treasury. For the government, the measure has three specific implications: it enables the payment of this year's maturities to the IMF with the resources that the organisation transferred to the country as part of the global distribution of liquidity among its members; the cancellation of temporary advances to the Central Bank, which will free up a margin for future assistance, especially with a view to 2022; and the reduction of the fiscal deficit projected for this year. The government had estimated a deficit of 4% of GDP for this year, but with these revenues it could be reduced to around 3% of GDP. The way in which these funds will be accounted for will give the BCRA more room to finance the Treasury's needs. The market accused that the government was also going to use these SDRs to finance higher spending with more monetary issuance. But the Ministry of Economy assures that this will not be the case.
