At the beginning of last week, the candidate a national deputy from Together for Change by Buenos aires city, Maria Eugenia Vidal, pointed strongly against the tourist policy of the Front of All. His criticisms earned him a strong cross with the current Minister of National Tourism, Matías Lammens, and in the last hours he came out with tip caps Enrique Meyer, who was the holder of the same portfolio between 2010 and 2015, during the second presidency from Cristina Kirchner.
Vidal had met last Tuesday with tourism leaders and, in an electoral key, pointed out against the government’s management of the sector and announced his initiatives in this area. “Lack of predictability: this is how they define references in the tourism sector to the management of the national government”, stated the former Buenos Aires governor in her social networks, and highlighted the “uncertainty” that exists in the area “due to the lack of clarity and mismanagement” .
Along these lines, he denounced that “the Government does not have a specific plan and does not understand their needs.” “We, from Congress, are going to promote different proposals so that they can continue to grow: A clear plan over time on how the country is going to open up; Exchange rate regularization; Lowering of workloads; For each new job they create, do not pay work taxes, ”Vidal interposed.
As the hours passed, the opinions found against the PRO leader were felt and one of them was that of Meyer, who countered: “It is important to keep the memory alive despite the complicity and shielding of some media that make It is possible that Vidal with total self-confidence speaks of the sector after having literally destroyed tourism in the province of Buenos Aires ”. And he shot: “It degraded the activity, took away the budget, ignored the needs of employers and workers and did not generate a single public policy.”
“It is outrageous that today I speak of the need to add legislators to Congress to benefit the activity, when the only projects to benefit tourism were presented by legislators from our space (Frente de Todos) and we clearly saw how from the city, ( Horacio) Rodríguez Larreta, did not generate a single aid program for hotels and gastronomy, which were the sectors most affected by the pandemic ”, the former minister completed, according to what was compiled by the portal Tourism530.
And far from defending himself from Vidal’s criticism of his management in charge of the portfolio, he said: “I don’t know what is worse, if the lack of management and the disaster they caused in four years or the hypocrisy with which they speak without blushing. ”. “Tourism suffered a lot in the government of Vidal, which was a disaster, it did not matter to see that the workers were left on the street and the companies closed, it must be said that way, without lukewarmness, so that this sad story is not repeat, ”he shot.
“We are not really surprised by this type of manipulation of the macrismo when they are in the opposition, since it is not the first time that they have demagogued and campaign against the misfortune of others, in this case with the tourist activity that has been the hardest hit by the pandemic at the national level. world, ”Meyer concluded at a time when the electoral campaign became an infinite round trip between the different political sectors that will participate in the legislative elections on November 14.
