Argentina Seeks Zero Poverty with Collaboration of Civil Society

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri’s administration faces the challenge of achieving zero poverty through “dialogue” and “collaboration” between the government and civil society to address inflation and rising utility rates.

Social Development Vice Minister Gabriel Castelli told EFE the government was focusing on protecting the poor from rising utility rates.

“It is something not valued significantly, but it has a huge impact on many people. Only the social electricity rate reaches more than 1 million households,” Castelli said.

The new Cabinet team is working on a “social protection” program that covers “the entire life cycle of people” and is “focused on equality of opportunity” to fight extreme poverty in northern Argentina, Castelli said.
