Bullrich promised a reform of the State at a lunch with the UIA


The PRO candidate acknowledged mistakes of the previous management, and promised to 'level the playing field', while she believes in greater regional integration and commercial exchange.

With a clearer horizon due to the self-exclusion of Mauricio Macri, Patricia Bullrich had lunch with the leadership of the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA).

The PRO candidate-she will contest the internal party of that party with Horacio Rodríguez Larreta-said that she wants an "

important industry, integrated into the world and competitive."

The former Minister of Security admitted that the industrialists suffered in the 2018-2019 recession and noted that her political space learned to approach the problems in another way.

"We are going to work on

competitiveness, deregulate, improve the tax system,

also paying attention to labor issues and regional integration," she defined.

In a talk that lasted almost two hours, Bullrich presented and received questions.

The industrialists raised their concern about

“structural problems”,

such as the availability of foreign currency.

They asked about normalization times of the exchange regime.

"The private sector has to invest and be

prepared for the competition

," Bullrich released.

He promised to "level the playing field" from the State so that everyone has the same rules of the game, according to his interlocutors.

"It will not choose winning or losing sectors," they stressed.

In tune with his public speech, Bullrich stated that he is thinking of a stabilization program, and that he will prioritize trade agreements with other blocs of countries.

When he referred to this macroeconomic structure, the most detailed explanations were given by Luciano Laspina (deputy and a kind of "Economy Minister" for Bullrich), while Dante Sica -former Minister of Industry- spoke about trade agreements and the possibilities of industrialists in that direction.

There was agreement between politicians and businessmen on the motors of the economy: energy, mining, knowledge-based services, agriculture and tourism.

"They are going to cause growth here, as they are also the ones that will allow us to insert ourselves more into the global context," they summarized.

They understand that they are the most dynamic businesses in the world.

In addition to Laspina and Sica, Bullrich was flanked by Federico Pinedo (former senator), Alberto Föhrig (internally defined as chief advisor) and José Nuñez (legislator for Santa Fe).

Lunch was with the UIA board of directors.

The president -Daniel Funes de Rioja- was with Luis Betnaza, Eduardo Nougués, Adrián Kaufmann Brea, Luis Tendlarz, Miguel Angel Rodríguez, Martín Rappallini, and Diego Coatz, executive director.

Bullrich reiterated that the "

public sector has to do its homework"

to generate macroeconomic improvements.

And that later it will be the private ones who make the necessary investments so that there are new jobs and greater labor dynamics.

The UIA gave him "the white paper", in which they set out their vision of industrial development and the economy.

The factory leaders have been having lunch with political figures and will invite more candidates.
