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.
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."

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.
