The governor of the province of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, referred this Wednesday to the negotiations of the national government with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and expressed his support for the strategy of the ruling party.

“After four years of macrism and two of a pandemic, we are only now seeing relevant growth, of very strong economic recovery. We have to define where we want to go, we cannot accept an adjustment, we have to reinforce active policies so that they arrive to those who need it most, “said Kicillof in dialogue with Radio 10.

The former Minister of Economy assured that currently “a very relevant growth is being seen” in the country. “Now, what is at stake is how we continue. Clearly the policies of wage restriction, structural adjustment, reform … Basically it is about reducing public investment to be able to pay creditors,” he said.

“Lower activity, lower growth and recovery to generate fewer imports and have dollars available for external payment. Both the Minister of Economy and President Alberto Fernández were very clear that an adjustment cannot be accepted at this stage “, he remarked.

On the other hand, Kicillof spoke about the forecasts of the World Bank that projected a much lower growth for Argentina than that proposed by Guzmán. “It is something systematic, it seems that the optimistic or pessimistic numbers indicate rather the sympathy that certain economists have with the Government.”

“They always screw up the forecasts when the government is not of a political sign that they like. More than technical, it is a political issue,” he added.
