In the midst of the economic crisis, aggravated by the rise in the blue dollar, President Alberto Fernández and Vice President Cristina Kirchner met at the Olivos Residence to analyze the financial situation after a week of extreme exchange rate tension.

Although the Presidency did not express itself on the matter, the conclave between the head of state and the vice president took place this Saturday at noon in the presidential fifth, with the aim of analyzing the steps to follow in economic matters.

In a meeting alone, which lasted several hours, Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner exchanged points of view on possible measures to stop the rise of the dollar. The sources consulted indicated that the Government is analyzing different options to encourage the agricultural sector to expedite the settlement of the harvest, with the aim of slowing down the fall in reserves in the Central Bank.

Within this framework, the Government will finish defining in the next few hours whether to make new economic announcements, with the aim of curbing exchange rate pressures before the market opens next Monday.
