Dujovne said in a letter to Argentine President Mauricio Macri that he had given his all to the job, helped tame a significant deficit and trim public spending but conceded: “Mistakes have been made, without a doubt.”
“I believe my resignation is in keeping with my place in a government... that listens to the people and acts accordingly,” he added.
Macri has appointed Hernan Lacunza, the current economy minister for Buenos Aires province, as Dujovne’s replacement, a government source told Reuters.
