Chilean president considers tax reform a priority

Santiago de Chile, May 1 (Prensa Latina) Chilean President Gabriel Boric considered the tax reform that his government will present to Congress in the coming months a priority.

“This is not one against the other, this is together for Chile, to have a better distribution of wealth,” the president told business people, after an event on the International Workers’ Day, celebrated on Sunday.

The objective of this “structural and tremendously relevant” measure is to have a more cohesive society, “because what we have experienced in the last few years reveals a very fragmented society with many pains.”

Boric invited the business people and the sectors with more resources in the country “to reach a great tax pact,” and commented that Minister of Finance Mario Marcel has already begun talks on this initiative.

According to the head of State, the transformations in Chilean society that his executive wants to promote “have to be done without pause and in a responsible manner. The solution does not come overnight,” he noted.

The minimum wage bill was submitted to Parliament urgently, he added, after a meeting with the Central Unitaria de Trabajadores, at which he called on the business sector to cooperate with these decisions.

The president included the most emerging measure of the “Chile Supports” program, that support for the basic protected basket, “because we know that inflation hits hardest on those who need it most.”

“We come from several years of social struggle together with several of those present,” he recalled, in reference to his experiences with the CUT for more than 10 years as a student leader during several working days.
