The tensions between the Government and the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) opened a new chapter in the last hours.

The setting was a meeting at the Association of Metallurgical Industries (ADIMRA), where 

the Minister of Productive Development, Matías Kulfas, made clear his discomfort

with the new head of the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA), Daniel Funes de Rioja.


What a pity that Funes de Rioja has only recognized construction as the only sector of the industry that grows,

" the official complained during a visit to the industrial services center a few blocks from Congress, and announced the disbursement of $ 50 million for strengthen the network of technology centers of the entity associated with the UIA.

The funny thing is that tomorrow Funes de Rioja already has

interviews scheduled with Kulfas and with the president of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce. 

Funes de Rioja

told Profile over the weekend that "there is a reactivation in those industries linked to construction and construction itself."

And he

spoke of "bottlenecks" in production

, including feeding.

In this way, he ratified the hardening of the captains of the industry and the strong criticism of the economic course.

This gloomy outlook collides head-on with the bonanza that the Government seeks to show prior to the elections.

Kulfas highlighted this Monday that "

the industry has already been growing employment for 11 consecutive months

, with 12 of the 16 industrial branches clearly improving." "Argentina today, with a pandemic, produces more than in 2019, without a pandemic." assured.

The turn of the UIA unleashed

strong clashes with José Ignacio de Mendiguren


The current head of BICE was one of those excluded from the new board of directors and holds Paolo Rocca, the owner of Techint and one of the most critical businessmen - along with Copal - responsible for Alberto Fernández's management.

But there would also be noise in other sectors.


Perhaps (Funes de Rioja) does not receive ADIMRA's reports

, I am going to check the mailing," joked Gerardo Benutolo, vice-first of the metallurgical chamber, during Kulfas' visit.

ADIMRA has Carlos Garrera as vice president and José Luis Cintolo as a member of the UIA executive committee.

According to the entity, the sector registered a rise of 51.8% year-on-year in April, but a fall of 4.4% per month.

INDEC data show a halt in activity in April: due to restrictions and infections, industry rose 0.3% per month and construction fell 2.2%.
