The Minister of Productive Development of the Nation, Matias Kulfas, he exhibited this Thursday at the 57th IDEA Colloquium, which takes place in Buenos Aires. There, the official of the Frente de Todos (FDT) vindicated the policies of the national government in production matters, and said that “today, the Argentine industry, despite the pandemic, has 12 out of 16 branches growing.”
In this context, Kulfas said that the productive sector is “generating 5% above 2019” and that “it has already recovered 35,000 jobs.”
“It is a lie that in Argentina the government, the production sectors and the labor sectors cannot sit at a table,” the official remarked.
In another section of his presentation, he asserted that the current administration has “recovered the state musculature, still in crisis, with more than 150 measures that we implemented in matters of industrial and productive policy with a budget that has multiplied.”
“We have to work on what we define as the three sustainability: macroeconomic sustainability, environmental sustainability and social sustainability. If we neglect one of them, growth will slow down,” Kulfas told the businessmen.
In addition, he considered that “while an energy crisis is being discussed in the world today, here in Argentina we have ordered gas production at a reasonable price.”
Kulfas also mentioned the sending of a series of bills by the National Executive to promote economic development, such as agribusiness, or the production of medicinal cannabis. He also praised the initiative that promotes the conversion of social plans into genuine work, understanding that these “are transitional.” “A country does not develop with social plans, but with work,” said the minister.
