BUENOS AIRES – The German company Siemens has announced that it expects to create 6,000 jobs in Argentina through the investments it is making in new projects in the South American country.
According to an official statement by the Argentine government, the head of Siemens, Joe Kaeser, met Thursday with President Mauricio Macri at the Casa Rosada, where the executive broke the news about the investments.
“Siemens’ commitment to Argentina responds to our country’s plan to attract new international investments,” Production Minister Francisco Cabrera told a press conference later at the seat of government.
Within its projects over the next four years, the German company plans “the development of a training center for preparing local employees and operators,” he said in the same statement.
“We believe that President Macri will stimulate significant growth in this country with the reforms and changes he is proposing,” Kaeser said.
The executive also invited the Argentine head of state to visit the international training center that Siemens operates in Germany.
Macri had already scheduled a trip to Berlin next July 5 on a state visit that will include a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
