The meeting of the Board of Directors of the UIA launched a new modality yesterday.
The main executives were in person at the traditional headquarters on Avenida de Mayo and the provincial leaders participated through Zoom.
With that very diplomatic way that characterizes him, Daniel Funes de Rioja received them with the novelty of the
Government's invitation to the act
that will take place tomorrow at 12 at the Bicentennial Museum in which the Hydrocarbons bill is presented.
For some it is a gesture that is interpreted
from the weakness of the Government
after the electoral result.
Above all, if the
of the ministers to the act in which the UIA celebrated the Industry Day, just 12 days ago
, is remembered
Other leaders, who still have
not come out of their astonishment
by the results of Sunday, slipped the record off: "It would be important that they
do not call just for the photo.
And that the gesture translates into a discussion on concrete measures in a government that until now it was characterized by not sharing spaces ".
It was to be expected and during the entire meeting the electoral issue flew over. "It was a
said from one of the Zoom squares. In gold they released: "The Government is going for the repechage and there may be a
riot with inflation."
And one of the leaders who before speaking made sure that the meeting was not recorded, said: "
There is no margin for them to go to the shoulder
." There was, of course, a coincidence that a stage of
and different scenarios were risked for November.
They also stopped at what happens with international freight that is affecting exports.
lack of warehouses on the ships, containers with skyrocketing prices and ships that only arrive
at the Brazilian port of Santos, were part of the talk.
"We cannot solve it alone, we are making arrangements
with the Government," Funes de Rioja told them.
This new reality is reflected in what happens with foreign trade.
24% of those consulted in the UIA survey said they had increased their shipments and
20% reduced them.
The head of the UIA insisted on an agenda with the industrial unions for a contractual simplification that encourages the hiring of workers as well as training programs to improve employability.
They also shared other data from the entity's survey showing a rebound in activity.
Thus, in July
33% of the industries said they had increased their production
when that percentage was 29% in April.
