“We have governed 21 months in a context of enormous uncertainty where adaptability has been fundamental, because that context is changing. And all the time we must be responding but always on the conviction that every step we take we do with the objective of taking care of our Argentina. And that is the path on which we seek to continue building, “he said, after which he listed various successful measures of his management, including the controls” of the exchange gap.
“What we do is solve problems in a very difficult context and we always do it with a very clear compass: how we can improve people’s lives. You have to listen. And adapt from listening, but always with the conviction of going through this historical moment so as to have left a better Argentina“, concluded the minister.
