The former minister of Hacienda during the presidency of Mauricio Macri, Alfonso Prat Gay, provided radio statements in which he accused the Administration of Alberto Fernandez from “fugitive” foreign exchange. “They take the Dollars everywhere, “said the former Minister of Economy of the Nation. At the same time, he highlighted the new Chief of Cabinet of the Nation, Juan Manzur. “It is the one that is most active,” he said. In return, he stated that the national president was fired “from management.”
In dialogue with Radio Miter, Prat-Gay referred to the situation of the dollar in our country relating it to the latest economic measures taken by the ruling party as part of the objective of reversing the result of PASO 2021. “The little plate also applies to the exchange issue ”, considered the economist, who reflected on the Central Bank’s reserves. “It was obvious that losing between 50 and 80 million dollars a day, the government came with the right thing. That’s why they put more stocks, “he said.
And he added: “They are the solutions they have: prohibit meat exports, the purchase of dollars. That is the creativity of Kirchnerism. They don’t worry about what happens next. This is the government that accused another of leaking foreign currency. They have the toughest stocks, they have a trade surplus and they take dollars everywhere. Because the traps don’t work. You make that mistake again: I close everything and then see what happens. And in the meantime, more pesos are added to the salad. At some point that has to accommodate ”.
In relation to the management of Alberto Fernández, he said that there is a “erased president”, who delegated almost all his activity to the governor of Tucumán. With regard to Juan Manzur, “he is the one who is active, the one who advances; they have run from the administration to the president ”. He also had time to question the Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán. “It is very clear the cost of not having done what had to be done in a reasonable time: if Guzmán had agreed with the Fund a few months ago, Argentina would have at least USD 4,000 million more reserves, because it would not have been necessary pay these two year-end installments. Even though there was a certain peace in the government, it was not managed well ”.
Finally, he ruled out an agreement between the Frente de Todos y Juntos por el Cambio, after the November General Elections. “The government is theirs. That’s what they were voted for. At the beginning of the government, the opposition approved all the laws. And also at the beginning of the pandemic. Later, when Cristina Kirchner saw a lot of harmony between Alberto and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, she broke everything. It is very difficult to agree based on Cristina’s personal wishes, which have nothing to do with the wishes of the republic ”.
