Alberto Fernández assured that Martín Guzmán "was never questioned"despite the pressure

President Alberto Fernández ratified the Minister of Economy Martín Guzmán in his position in an interview given to the Spanish media El País during his tour of Spain in search of investments amid the internal ones within the Frente de Todos (FDT) where the minister is strongly questioned by the Kirchner sector in interviews and public speeches . He disputes that deepened due to the agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and due to the increase in tariffs.

In this political and economic context, the president assured “I hate the idea of ​​ratification. It was never questioned. Martín is the minister who dealt with private debts and with the IMF, who made us grow by 10.3%, who lowered unemployment from 13% to 7%”.

More own crack for fees and growth

Before the consultation of the Spanish media about the rejection by Cristina Kirchner, and those who respond to her, of the agreement with the IMF and the increase in rates due to the removal of subsidies, Alberto Fernández assured that “we proposed an adjustment of rates following a law that those who have now opposed voted, which proposed adjusting them by a salary variation coefficient, which is what we have done. They are adjusted taking into account people’s income. That is very far from the rates that were experienced in the years of Macri.

Macri’s fault and the right

On the other hand, the president was also consulted on the causes of the crisis in Argentina despite being rich in raw materials for export such as gas, lithium, soybeans, etc. to which he blamed the government of Mauricio Macri.

When “the liberals and the right win the government again and again generate a lot of problems for us. The government of Mauricio Macri borrowed in an absolutely irresponsible way and we had to renegotiate 100,000 million dollars of debt with private creditors in the midst of a pandemic. And we had a very tough negotiation with the IMF so that they would not impose their plan on us. Now, Argentina has structural problems, and when it grows a lot it needs a lot of imported inputs and the lack of dollars complicates the economy. It is a problem that all Argentine governments have,” said Alberto Fernández.
