Macri, Xi Commit to Go Ahead with Joint Nuclear Project

BEIJING – The presidents of Argentina and China on Wednesday committed to go ahead with a project to build two nuclear plants in Argentina with Chinese funding.

Mauricio Macri and Xi Jinping presided over the signing of 16 bilateral agreements of cooperation, including those related to the nuclear project, first signed in 2015 by the administration of Cristina Fernandez, the former president of Argentina.

Macri, after a meeting at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, said that the meeting went very well and that the wish for collaboration was ratified.

Macri is in China on a state visit, which is scheduled conclude on Thursday in Shanghai.

The agreements signed included the design and construction of the San Martin railway and a solar park in Jujuy province, as well as the first phase of the Belgrano-Cargas railway.

The two countries also agreed on plans for boosting investments, cooperation in healthcare and food security, and signed protocol requirements for the export of table grapes from Argentina to China.

During the signing of the agreements, there was no mention of President Nestor Kirchner and Governor Jorge Cepernic’s hydroelectric projects, signed by Fernandez two years ago and which have currently been halted owing to environment concerns.

Sources from the Chinese delegation expressed hope that the initiative would move forward after Macri’s visit.
