Argentina Plans Flood Control Project with Dutch Aid, President Says

BUENOS AIRES – Argentina plans a flood control project in Buenos Aires province’s Salado River basin with the assistance of the Dutch government, Mauricio Macri said on Tuesday.

The Salado River “has been synonymous with problems, with conflicts and crises” for decades, while the technology has been available “so that it could continue being a blessing,” the president, who will mark his one-year anniversary in office on Dec. 10, said during a ceremony in the city of General Belgrano.

Macri was joined by Buenos Aires Gov. Maria Eugenia Vidal in thanking the Dutch government and, especially, Queen Maxima, who was born in Argentina.

“She has helped us by putting all the technical capabilities of the Dutch government at our disposal,” Macri said.

Vidal, for her part, said she had barely taken office and the Dutch government “sent its technicians” to examine the situation and lend the Netherlands’ long experience with flood control projects.

Work on the flood control project is expected to start in March 2017 and last 12 months, improving the lives of about 95,000 residents in the Salado River basin.
