The unprecedented trip of Máximo Kirchner to China: the longest flight at 46 years and in a plane of 22 million dollars

Highlights: Máximo Kirchner will accompany Sergio Massa on his tour of Shanghai and Beijing with a large delegation. The delegation includes several Peronist deputies with a curious agenda. "They put other elephants on the plane so that all eyes do not turn on Maximo," they interpret in the Government. "Financial, mining, energy agreements and opening of new markets" are the axes that stand out in Economy regarding Massa's visit to Shanghai and China, according to a government source.


He accompanies Sergio Massa on his tour of Shanghai and Beijing with a large delegation, including several Peronist deputies with a curious agenda.


If we're going to do it, we have to do it right. Máximo Kirchner did not walk with little girls and decided, at age 46, to get on a plane for the first time (at least since his adolescence) to travel to the other side of the world. The head of La Cámpora did not opt for a short stretch or an airliner: tonight he will inaugurate the brand new presidential ARG01 of US $ 22 million in a trip of almost a day and a half to China.

The Vice President's son will accompany Sergio Massa to two Chinese cities: Shanghai and Beijing. One night in the first and two in the second. He will do so in the midst of strong tensions over the impact caused by the candidacy of Eduardo Wado de Pedro against the intention of the economy minister to be the only and natural candidate for president of the Frente de Todos. That is, without having to face a STEP.

"

They will have a week for the rosquear. It is a wink that Máximo makes to Sergio after Cristina's decision to empower Wado and deflate his figure," a Peronist leader who often speaks with both told Clarín.

The third for the thread to be complete is the deputy chief of staff, Juan Manuel Olmos, who was also invited by Massa. Olmos was not even made up of an agenda to justify his trip. "He's Alberto's (Fernandez) overseer," joked one of those who will get on the plane.

To help explain what the head of La Cámpora is going to do to China, there are three other deputies of the ruling party, close to Massa. "They put other elephants on the plane so that all eyes do not turn on Maximo," they interpret in the Government.

The delegation includes three deputies in addition to Maximo: the official and travel friends Cecilia Moreau and Paula Penacca; and Diego Sartori, a missionary who every so often has to go out to remember that he is an opponent without much conviction.

But what specifically are Maximo and the other three Members going to do to China? Clarín asked a government source. "Nobody is very clear," they replied. No precise response was obtained from the Presidency of the Chamber of Deputies.

Massa's team is well nourished: Diego Giuliano, Minister of Transport of the Nation; Flavia Royon, Secretary of Energy of the Nation; Juan José Bahillo, Secretary of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Nation; Marco Lavagna, Secretary of Economic and Financial Affairs of the Nation; Miguel Angel Pesce, President of the Central Bank of Argentina; Agustín Gerez, president of ENARSA; and Leandro Gorgal, Undersecretary for International Financial Relations for Development.

Máximo will also share the visit to China with Ambassador Sabino Vaca Narvaja, brother of Camilo, his former brother-in-law and father of his niece, and son of Fernando Vaca Narvaja, one of the former leaders of Montoneros.

"Financial, mining, energy agreements and opening of new markets", the axes that stand out in Economy regarding Massa's visit to Shanghai and Beijing.

What the title of the press release does not say is that Massa's main objective is to use the Chinese yuan swap to pay for imports from that country. Máximo also takes a symbolic cut: if they do well, they will bring in foreign currency that is not from the IMF. Like the debt that Nestor took with Venezuela or how they tried without luck with the Russian rubles.

But perhaps the main concern of Massa and Maximo is not to reach an agreement to feed the Central Bank with foreign currency. But the commander who pilots the new presidential plane does not think of making the same reckless maneuver that worried more than one in Aeroparque.

The pilot is being investigated by the National Civil Aviation Administration. ANAC reported that a file was opened to analyze the maneuvers and maintained that the aircraft was under the dependence of the Ministry of Defense.
