On Thursday, June 30, the Argentine Congressional Budget Office (OPC) held an Online Workshop for Legislative Advisors on methodologies for estimating the fiscal impact of parliamentary initiatives. The presentation was given by the General Director, Marcos Makón, the Director of Tax Analysis, Carlos Guberman, and Julieta Olivieri, Laura Cafarelli and Pedro Velasco from the OPC’s Analysts Team.
With more than 100 participants, the Workshop provided fundamental tools for a correct estimation of fiscal impact and reviewed the different methodologies for their calculation through practical examples. Emphasis was also placed on tools to search for information in public access platforms to enrich the legislative work. Participants were able to provide input and ask questions to improve their daily work in their respective offices.
Through this activity, the OPC continues to carry out its mission of providing support to the Legislative Branch to deepen the understanding of issues involving public resources, democratizing knowledge, and decision-making.
