The minister’s sayings take place after President Alberto Fernández had lunch at Casa Rosada with a group of businessmen who promised to “continue increasing investments” and asked “to start seeing the deadlines” to “get the double compensation and the ban of layoffs “.
During the meeting, which took place for two hours in the Eva Perón room of the Government House, Fernández was accompanied by the Chief of Staff, Juan Manzur; the Minister of the Interior, Eduardo “Wado” by Pedro; and the head of the Chamber of Deputies, Sergio Massa.
Among the representatives of the private sector were Javier Madanes (Aluar and Fate), Alejandro Simón (Grupo Sancor Seguros), Hugo Eurnekian (Corporación América), Marcelo Mindlin (Pampa Energía), Francisco De Narváez (Grupo De Naváez), Jorge Brito ( Banco Macro), Juan Martín de la Serna (Mercado Libre) and Marcos Bulgheroni (PAE).
“The businessmen said that, in order to continue increasing investments, it would be good to begin to see the deadlines in which the double compensation and the prohibition of dismissals can be obtained,” government sources pointed out after the meeting.
In that line, from the National Executive they responded to the businessmen that the measures are going to “go backwards” as they analyze that “the economy is reactivated”.
In June, the national government extended until December 31 the prohibition to carry out dismissals without just cause and, also, the prohibition to carry out suspensions, within the framework of the provisions adopted since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, in March 2020 .
