“The collection increased by 87%,” said the president about the role of Mercedes Marcó del Pont in the AFIP, and remarked that “we have 23 consecutive months of increase in collection above inflation.”

“It was very important in very difficult times. In 0-rate credits, in IFEs, and in a series of measures we take to make the Argentine tax system more progressive. For that enormous work, Mercedes, I thank you,” said Alberto Fernández.

The former person in charge of carrying out the national collection of the treasury, will now have to complete the unfinished tasks left by Belize, such as the enhancement and effective functioning of the Social Economic Council, or to accept financing from multilateral credit organizations , after the setback that Argentina had with the head of the IDB, Maurice Claver-Carone.

On the other hand, in his place in the AFIP will fall the Kirchnerist from La Plata Charles Castagnetowho has held different positions during the governments of Cristina Kirchner, in particular as an advisor to Alicia Kirchner in the Ministry of Social Development.

The entrance of a Kirchnerist to the AFIP seeks to harden the position of the treasury, after several criticisms made of the agency by sectors of the Front of All who agree with the vice president.

In a contact with the press at the end of the event at Casa Rosada, Castagneto anticipated that “we are not going to condone illegal work and labor trafficking. In the 21st century there can be no more labor trafficking in Argentina.” And he added: “A new stage of government begins. I think we are one more link in a joint effort. The important thing is to comply with the law and charge those who have to pay.”
