BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri said Wednesday that his public service was based on actions and ripped those who utter “beautiful words” and ideas but disappear when the time comes to make things happen.
“Knowing how to do politics is solving people’s problems and doing concrete things. Sometimes we say beautiful words and some people have a magic way of saying them, but in a moment they disappear and if things do not happen, frustration comes,” Macri said.
The president made these remarks at the groundbreaking ceremony for a major highway in Buenos Aires province, one of the projects he promised during his campaign.
The National Highway 7 project will connect Junin with Chacabuco, both located in Buenos Aires province, about 55 kilometers (34 miles) away.
Buenos Aires Gov. Maria Eugenia Vidal said the road project would be in full swing by the end of the year.
Vidal thanked Macri for his commitment and for keeping his promise.
Macri said highways were the key to economic growth, tourism and communications.
