Just a couple of weeks ago, in the midst of the political crises that shook the Administration of Alberto Fernandez, the new minister of Agriculture, Livestock and fishing the nation, Julian Dominguez, announced measures related to the stocks of the export of beef. However, it was never regulated in part by the Secretary of Internal Trade Paula Español, who yesterday was appointed in the Ministry of the Interior. Now, it transpired that the head of the official bank of the Chamber of Deputies, Maximum Kirchner, would boost a new stocks to be distributed among “friends” refrigerators.
In a post he made on his Twitter account, journalist Javier Lanari said that “the liberation of meat exports to China was a ‘fucking for Videomatch’. In the end they will create another quota that they will distribute among some refrigerators. They do not release anything. Máximo (Kirchner) first intervention to (Juan) Manzur and Domínguez… ”, continued Lanari on his social networks. This is a quota of 21,500 tons of preserved cow, which will be distributed among 70 meat processing plants. The field on alert to the decision of the portfolio of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Nation.
An industry that matters to you
It is not the first time that the name of Máximo Kirchner has been heard in the livestock sector. Before the PASO 2021 Elections, the Secretary of Agriculture, Jorge Solmi, sent a “wrong” message to a WhatsApp group in which he participated and that it had nothing to do with its content. “It will not be possible to make a last effort talking to Máximo to free some of the manufactured and preserved beef (8 unpregnant teeth) and fit new refrigerators that do not have? It is important in the central zone for the elections, ”Solmi told a group of producers. The message was deleted after a few minutes.
In mid-August, the head of the ruling bench in Deputies used the Cañuelas Finance Market to deliver a speech. The authorities of this entity themselves repudiated the actions of Máximo Kirchner. “The entire event was organized without our consent, nor did we have prior knowledge of the event,” they said in a statement. “From this principle of respect, it is our obligation to repudiate and make it clear that we do not endorse or consent to the use of our private enterprise for partisan and political purposes,” they closed.
Domínguez’s announcement, still on hold
At the end of September, Julián Domínguez, the President, the Chief of Cabinet, Juan Manzur, and four agricultural entities: Sociedad Rural Argentina (SRA), Confederaciones Rurales Argentinas (CRA); Argentine Agrarian Federation (FAA) and the Confederación Intercooperativa Agropecuaria Limitada (Coninagro), announced the cessation of beef exports to China that opened on Monday (for October 4), which never happened. The versions indicate that Español was one of the officials who prevented it. For this reason, she was “kicked out” from the Ministry of Internal Trade.
