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.

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