Macri to Promote Science, Innovation in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – President Mauricio Macri said in a commentary published over the weekend that he wanted to promote scientific research and technological innovation as “key pieces” for Argentina’s growth.

“Far from being exclusive to the laboratory realm, innovation and technological development are ingrained in our lives and, even more so, they are key pieces for the country’s growth,” Macri said in the op-ed piece published in the Rio Negro newspaper.

In the commentary, titled “Science and Innovation as a Bridge to the Argentine We Want,” Macri said Argentines “are recognized around the world because of their creativity,” and “it is time to show” what they are able of doing when they unite “their talents.”

“We have the potential to advance in the field of science applied to our daily lives, to bet on improving Argentines’ lives. Because, to achieve our great goals, such as zero poverty and defeating drug trafficking, we have to be united, and this also means unity with our scientists and researchers who have so much to contribute to the nation,” Macri said.

The president said his most recent Cabinet meeting was attended by three scientists, prominent figures in satellite research, autoimmune diseases and the production of 3D orthopedic prostheses.

“To innovate is to find new solutions to old problems. It is to stand before reality with a new approach, seeking the way to overcome obstacles in the search for answers. By definition, it is much more than doing something new: it is to do something with a real impact on someone else’s life,” Macri said.
