“We are aware of the macroeconomic problems we have and that the global crisis adds uncertainties and fears. I want to convey to every Argentinean to stay calm, that we are working and as we overcome all the problems we will overcome this too. We have the tools to do it and we are innovating in others to be able to get out of the mess that the world has put us in,” he said.

“I am aware on a day of joy, I do it in a very difficult context to live in Argentina, which I do not neglect, and for which I work every day,” he emphasized. And he added: “I ask you to remember that I did not escape any of those problems. I had to argue with the IMF and I got over it, and I had to do it in the middle of a pandemic, which we also got over. We got over it, we grew back, we lowered the unemployment, public works. We continue to grow in another context that poses other challenges to those who keep 20 billion dollars in the countryside and do not turn them over when the country needs it, to those who speculate with the dollar, to inflation”.
