While their parents observe that the political class

seems more concerned about October than about the risk that the second wave of Covid implies

, the young representatives of the main business entities together with union youth leaders presented a

consensus document.

Quite a message in a country where

coordinated actions

to confront the plague

seem to be



They did it last Tuesday at the City Convention Center and, before the presidents of the UIA, the entities of the banks, Rural, Construction and Commerce and several union leaders.

They titled it: "ARGENTINA 2040: Diagnosis of business-union consensus for a

plan for economic-social growth and sustainable development."

And they were baptized as "Generation 2040".

These are the G6 Youth, which brings together the business chambers, of those that make up Generation for a Better Argentina (GAM) and those of the Union Youth.

For this survey of the social situation with a roadmap, they received

the support of the Observatory of Social Debt of the UCA.

In the auditorium they were listened to by Javier Bolzico (Adeba), Rodrigo Pérez Graziano (Chamber of Commerce), Iván Szczech (Construction Chamber), Daniel Pelegrina (Rural Society), Miguel Acevedo (Industrial Union), Cristian Jerónimo (Union Youth and SEIVARA, the Union of Glass Employees, Juan Pablo Brey (Air Navigators) and the General Secretary of the Informatics Union, Ignacio Lonzieme, among others.

Social dialogue

In the presentation there were different panels that sought to establish

the link between poverty, employment and fiscal balance,

and "how the fragility of these structural problems negatively impacts the future."

Thus, they referred to the importance of

social dialogue and the need for a new multisectoral space.

"Social dialogue is the main work tool since it allows strengthening ties of trust and establishing long-term links between the central actors in production," agreed Nahir Llanos and Ignacio Lonzieme from the Union Youth, and the young entrepreneurs Milagros Etcheberry and Juan Piano.

They highlighted that the most urgent problems are

poverty, lack of employment

and how to achieve fiscal balance in a context in which Argentina, with a young population, has a demographic bonus in favor.

There was talk of the

fragmentation of the labor market and a sustained increase in public spending that fails to reverse the poverty curve.

When they had to refer to the next steps, Marysol Rodríguez, from the young UIA and Agustín Otero Monsegur, from the San Miguel citrus company, pointed out that workers and entrepreneurs are

interconnected and fundamental pieces of the productive network.

Rodríguez said: "This

is the path of those of us who want to stay here," he

said and called for


"This is a starting point," added Otero Monsegur.

Ivana Vidal, from La Rural, anticipated that the next step: to help design public policies to improve educational access and professional training processes for workers.
