Nicolás Dujovne (Spanish pronunciation: [nikoˈlaz ðuˈxoβne]; born May 18, 1967) is an Argentine economist, appointed as Minister of the Treasury of the Mauricio Macri administration between January 2017 and August 2019.[1][2][3][4].

Early life and education[edit]

Nicolás Dujovne was born in Buenos Aires on 18 May 1967. He is the son of the architect Berardo Dujovne. He graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Buenos Aires and the University of California, as well as undertaking postgraduate studies at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella.[5] He was a professor at the University of Buenos Aires.[6]

He was Secretary of the National Treasury Department between 1997 and 1998 as chief of advisors to Pablo Guidotti, during the presidency of Carlos Menem. He was also appointed by the State to be the director of Papel Prensa S. A., a newsprint paper manufacturer, and represented the Ministry of Economy in the Central Bank of Argentina. In the private sector, from 2001 to 2011, he was the chief economist at Banco Galicia in Buenos Aires. He then worked in various consultancies until in 2014 he founded his own financial consulting firm specializing in macroeconomics, serving there as a director. He has also been a consultant to the World Bank in Buenos Aires and Washington, D.C.[5]

He was a columnist in the daily newspaper La Nación and co-hosted the program Odyssey Argentina on the television channel Todo Noticias of the Clarín Group.


In 2010 he was economic advisor for the presidential campaign of Ricardo Alfonsín, the son of President Raúl Alfonsín. Close to Mauricio Macri, Dujovne has been coordinator of the economic cabinet of his government, along with Mario Quintana, working in the technical teams of the Pensar Foundation,[6] and contributing during his presidential campaign on fiscal issues. Since 2012 he has also advised the block of the Radical Civic Union of the Senate of the Argentine Nation, forming part of the temporary plant.

On December 26, 2016, after the dismissal of Alfonso Prat-Gay by President Macri, the splitting into two of the Ministry of Finance and Public Finance was announced, with Dujovne being appointed Minister of Finance from January 2017. Prior to assuming office, he resigned from the Senate and closed his consultancy.[7]
