In that sense, he indicated that this understanding shows that “it is not a problem to sit at the same table the State, employers and unions” despite the fact that, “sometimes”, the union sectors are “reviled saying that they put bats in the wheel.”

Kulfas points to that “This administration has had to manage the serious problems that the pandemic generated, and at the same time also work on the challenges of reactivation and of implementing the policies that Argentina needs for development.”
“In other words, the policies we need not only to grow and recover the lost ground of Covid.19, and the crisis that began in April 2018, with the strong outflow of capital and over.indebtedness processes, but also the policies that They are going to allow us to grow for long years, which is what Argentina needs to get ahead and solve its structural problems, “said the official.
He put as an example of development the “excellent scenario we have in the knowledge economy” and put special focus on “a sector such as software, which is growing in terms of production and employment, and which is probably the one that grew the most, with 15% higher than at the end of 2019.”
“This in no way can be attributed to a fortuitous factor, but rather to having recovered the state musculature even in crisis, with more than 150 measures in the matter of industrial and productive policy,” said the minister.
