Today is the 85th anniversary of the BCRA. It was created as a result of a monetary and banking reform, in a time when the world was suffering the effects of an unprecedented global crisis.
The BCRA was a privately- and state-run entity until March 1946, when it became a wholly state-run entity at the service of all Argentinians.
Along years of major global changes, the BCRA has played a key role in the life of Argentina by conducting policies oriented to boost production and development.
Today, the BCRA is, more than ever, clear about the purpose set out in Section 3 of its Charter: “to promote monetary and financial stability, employment, and economic development with social equality”.
