After José de Mendiguren's diatribe on the day of his inauguration a week ago, the debut of Daniel Funes de Rioja in the leadership of the UIA was

also a spicy dialogue with Matías Kulfas and then a calmer and coincident one with the president of the Bank Central

, Miguel Pesce. In the traditional headquarters of Avenida de Mayo of the industrialists were Funes de Rioja and the secretary of the entity, Miguel Rodríguez, owner of the leader in paintings Sinteplast.

For the entity, the fact that both officials participated in the first meeting of the board of directors was a way

to turn the page on Mendiguren's claims about the legitimacy

of the new managers. Funes had already passed a first test when he spoke on behalf of the businessmen

in the reception of the Spanish president, Pedro Sánchez

. And yesterday morning in his speech to the ILO plenary, which for the first time in history was made virtually, he praised the handling in the first stage of the pandemic and added:

“Tripartite dialogue

(Government, workers and companies) has been and should be established on the path to promote competitiveness and productivity, with quality employment, social integration and gender equality ”.

It is curious but the one who got the applause of the industrialists was Pesce when he emphasized that

Argentina has to export US $ 90 billion


"Producing and exporting more and better

is the only way to turn the page

not only from the effects of the pandemic but from years of macro volatility and social deterioration," said Pesce.

Many read that statement as a message to the government itself, which

banned meat exports.

And that's why they gave back samples from the screens.

"At least there is a north", praised Funes de Rioja before the general approval.

Of course, the businessmen did not deprive themselves of proposing greater

access to freely available foreign exchange

for exporters in the industry.

And the need for credit instruments for working capital and investment.

Pesce was with the vice president of the BCRA, Sergio Woyecheszen.

Matías Kulfas, Minister of Productive Development, started his presentation with


He listed the measures taken by the Government in the midst of the pandemic.

He said:

"With the ATP we have applied the largest bailout in Argentine history,

there were sectoral plans, historical expansion of credit for production, the financial inclusion of MSMEs and the promotion of investment and exports."

And then he made public

his disappointment at the lack of recognition.

“We continue to bet on dialogue, on consensus.

I am totally at

odds with the crack, I don't want the crack

, so when I see some statements I am a bit surprised ”.

The minister did not let it pass that they did not refer to the rescue of the Mendoza IMPSA.

“It was about to close and lose a unique technology for Argentina and Latin America


We were surprised not to have seen an expression of the UIA, at least acknowledging this effort and accompanying it.

If something has changed, it is on your side, Daniel, and I would like to understand why, "he said.

Funes reemphasized their

commitment to dialogue

as they

listened from the squares of the Zoom Luis Betnaza (Techint), Eduardo Nougués (Ledesma), Adrian Kaufmann Brea (Arcor), Guillermo Moretti (Federation Industrial de Santa Fe), Miguel Acevedo (Aceitera General Deheza), David Uriburu (Techint), Martín Rappallini (UIA Buenos Aires), Isaías Drajer (Laboratories), Carolina Castro (Autopartes Guidi), Martín Cabrales (Grupo Cabrales), Cristiano Rattazzi (Fiat), Pedro Reyna (wood) and Jorge Sorabilla (textiles), among others.
