Speaking virtually at the event, the President said the different forms of inequality were exacerbated by Covid-19 to the point of becoming a true new social issue that today requires the search for alternatives that protect and dignify the excluded.
During his speech, Fernandez said it is essential that international credits do not condition the processes of development in growth, equity and social justice, noting that only in this way will it be possible to implement policies aimed at tangible realities, which has been called the “employment accelerator”.
In another moment of his presentation, he referred to the negotiation that his country is carrying out with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to refinance the outstanding debt borrowed in 2018 by his predecessor, Mauricio Macri, consisting of 45 billion dollars.
In this regard, he pointed out that during the talks with the Fund, they have preserved the rights of workers and the most vulnerable groups, but also the productive capital, establishing conditions for financial stability conducive to business tranquility and the necessary investments to grow.
On the other hand, he emphasized that international financial architecture is what marks the imbalances and does not accompany the real economy and much less social justice.
In the case of Argentina, he said, “it is in the process of negotiating its external debt and seeking the balance redirected towards the spirit of the new normality”.
