Enrique Carrier, the person in charge of the investigation, said in an interview with Infobae News Agency: “In the investigation, it was found that Apple’s products are products with a large price difference between Argentina and other countries. The reason is because the company’s products need to pay extremely high taxes when entering Argentina.” In addition to expensive taxes, the declining ability to purchase currency in Argentina is also a major factor leading to the increase in commodity prices.
