Various representatives of small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) met with the elected President, Gabriel Boric, in the Providencia commune, in order to discuss what type of cooperation the next mandate will have with the union. In conclusion, a public-private table was agreed between his government and the sector organizations.
Juan Pablo Swett, multigremial leader of entrepreneurs, said after the appointment that the president-elect, “gives a huge signal to do pre-legislative work, something that has not been done in previous governments, so that we can send more consensual things to Congress. “.
He added that the next reforms related to his sector were discussed, “it will probably be the tax reform to finance the program that the president-elect has presented. We believe that he will carry out a labor reform, especially with the hours worked.”
For his part, Roberto Rojas, president of the union confederation, Conupia, pointed out that the appointment with the authority “was very pleasant and cordial. The various unions have exposed the problems of our sector and received a very good response.” He also affirms that they will continue talking and maintaining a relationship, “one of the first commitments that seems very relevant to us is the creation of a public-private table between the government and SME organizations at the end of March,” said Rojas.
Finally, Froilán Rojas, leader of the National Confederation of Free Fairs, stressed that “it is the first time in the history of Chile that the elected President of the Republic invites to a meeting of this magnitude, where we are discussing national policies. We present him to the President, a proposal for the development of free fairs, in conjunction with all the small and medium-sized companies in Chile. One of our demands is to be able to have legal support to be able to provide a better service to the community. “
