President Alberto Fernández faces a new key week of his administration, after having signed the agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) last Friday.
The head of state seeks to achieve consensus among the business and trade union sectors, at a time when the Frente de Todos has serious unity problems. For this Tuesday, the first stop of this dialogue is expected to agree on prices and wages, in an attempt to stop the escalation of prices.
This is the launch of the Argentina Productiva 2030 plan, which will be held at the Kirchner Cultural Center, with the participation of Fernández, along with businessmen, trade unionists and governors, within the framework of the Economic and Social Council, chaired by Gustavo Béliz.
The presence of representatives of the Industrial Union, Industrial SMEs, the Chamber of Commerce and Construction, the Liaison Table, the Agroindustrial Council, the Chamber of Medium-sized Enterprises and Apyme is expected. In addition, leaders of the CGT and CTA will participate on behalf of the unions.
“The President called for the business sector, the workers’ sector, and obviously in the area that has to do with one of the productive engines of Argentina, such as the countryside, to be meeting,” said the chief of staff , Juan Manzur, days ago.
In addition, the president of the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) Daniel Funes de Rioja welcomed the appointment of the head of state, and said he was “convinced of working together” to “face these global problems and give the country predictability.”
