Argentina’s Macri Argues for Decentralization

BUENOS AIRES – Argentina’s regions need greater freedom to pursue economic development according to their individual circumstances within the framework of a “truly federal” state, President Mauricio Macri said on Friday.

He spoke during a visit to the northern province of Catamarca on the occasion of the 46th National and International Poncho Festival.

“The development of the country is the development of each regional economy. We no longer want a centralist country, we want a truly federal country,” Macri said in Catamarca city, the provincial capital.

The president, sporting a brown poncho, discussed the Belgrano Plan, a program of social, economic and infrastructure development under way in Catamarca and the neighboring northern provinces of Salta, Jujuy, Tucuman, La Rioja, Misiones, Corrientes, Chaco, Formosa and Santiago del Estero.

Catamarca, according to Macri, should take advantage of its abundant sunlight and wind to become a center of solar and wind power.

“With energy, we grow and progress. Here too, Catamarca has another great opportunity for development,” he said.

Before the speech, the president toured the Eva Peron Children’s Hospital, where he emphasized the need for additional beds and timely completion of an ongoing renovation, and paid a visit to Catamarca’s renowned Our Lady of the Valley basilica.
