BUENOS AIRES – Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri called on Friday for dialogue in Buenos Aires to reach “the best solution” to the serious situation in the South American country after the depreciation of the peso and the fall of the stock market already known as “black Wednesday.”
“Only through dialogue will we find the best solution,” he said on Friday at the close of the IAE Summit 2018 business meeting.
The president emphasized the power of the country’s natural resources as a way to strengthen the economy.
According to a statement released by the Argentine presidency, Macri said that if citizens work as a team the country will move away from the “legacy” left by the previous government of Cristina Fernandez (2007-2015), and the “decades of the culture of prepotent, extortive and mafia power.”
The annual meeting of the IAE Summit 2018 brought together entrepreneurs and executives from different parts of Latin America with the aim of discussing the challenges of modern society and the role of entrepreneurs.
“The problem is that politics has not been able to manage properly for many years. But now we are committed to (change), from the provincial governments and the nation, all to help the country grow based on generating quality ... employment,” the president said.
