The Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, informed this Tuesday that, if the union conflict in the tire factories is not eventually resolved on Wednesday, The Government will enable “manufacturing companies as emergency importers” so that they can acquire “everything they need” abroad.
This was stated when he led a meeting at the Ministry of Economy with representatives of the automotive chain, in which he stated that “145,000 jobs are beginning to be put at risk and almost 40 million dollars per day of loss are beginning to be put at risk.” .

“You cannot be hostage to capricious situations and for a very small group to put 150,000 jobs at risk,” Massa said.
In addition, he anticipated that The Government will make the stock of tires recently seized at Customs available to automotive terminalsso that they “review what works for them and can continue producing”.
