In the midst of the pressures exerted by the massismo and the kirchnerismo so that the Frente de Todos presents a single candidate, President Alberto Fernández showed himself this Thursday in an act with the presidential pre-candidate Daniel Scioli and asked not to back down.
"I am aware that in these four years we have done a lot. I am as aware of that as of everything that remains to be done, but let's not go back, let's not go back," said Fernández when participating in the first export to Brazil of the Whirlpool appliance plant, in the Buenos Aires district of Pilar.
With the presence of Scioli as ambassador to Brazil, whom he did not mention during his speech, the head of state said: "Let's continue with this. I ask you not to back down, to keep looking forward."
In this context, Fernández retorted: "Do not lower your arms, you are in a company that should inspire you. Do not go back, bet on the future. As Flaco Spinetta says: 'tomorrow is always better'".
In the midst of the internal frictions that are beginning to accelerate, given the proximity of the closing of electoral alliances and the presentation of the lists of pre-candidates, the president arrived around noon at the Whirlpool headquarters together with Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero, who was part of the podium from which Alberto Fernández spoke.
"Do not lower your arms, you are in a company that should inspire you. Do not go back, bet on the future, "said Alberto Fernández. Photo: Presidency
While Scioli listened to the speech of the head of state sitting in the front row, as could be seen during the times it was focused by the official broadcast, the President valued the "increase in registered employment" in the last months of his administration.
Almost simultaneously, from Escobar's Buenos Aires party, Economy Minister Sergio Massa announced improvements in the scales for the monotributo together with the chief of staff of the province of Buenos Aires, Martín Insaurralde, and local mayor, Ariel Sujarchuk.
During his activity, the head of state recalled that "when the economies of the world fell during the pandemic" of coronavirus it was believed that the economic recovery we thought that the recovery "was going to be very slow and that maybe we would not get to see it, but that did not happen because there was a decision "
"To my surprise, I found that in Whirlpool they are not only making the washing machine to export to Brazil and for the domestic market but they are also producing kitchens and that they are thinking of producing air conditioners. All this started in a very difficult time, where the pandemic still prohibited us from many things and everything seemed like it was going to be impossible," said Fernández.
In that line, the president highlighted the accompaniment of the State to the private sector: "When we spoke and they showed me the growth tables and how the company was developing, we could see that this was an almost perfect project where everyone did what they had to do, where each one fulfilled what he had committed. "
"All that was done by us, not me. The people, the Argentine society, did it. I include entrepreneurs, businessmen, those who invest, those who trust the country, those who do not buy bonds and securities but invest in machines so that you have work and produce, and your real profit is to load a container to go to Brazil, "he concluded.
