REUTERS SUMMIT-Argentina's Macri sees investment spike after mid-term vote

BUENOS AIRES, Aug 8 (Reuters) - President Mauricio Macri told Reuters on Tuesday investments in Argentina would multiply after what he predicted will be a triumph for his Let’s Change Coalition in October’s mid-term elections.

While Macri said his allies would win “by a lot” nationwide, he admitted polls showed a tight race between his party’s candidate and former left-wing populist President Cristina Fernandez for a Senate seat in Buenos Aires province, the country’s largest.

In an interview during the Reuters Latin America Investment Summit, Macri said the economy was picking up steam and would grow 4.5 percent in the last quarter of 2017, while growth of 4 percent next year would help lower the fiscal deficit.

“Once we confirm Argentines’ vocation for change this (the investments) will multiply several more times,” he said just five days before mid-term primary elections.
