Argentina to Focus on Jobs, Infrastructure as G20 Chair

BUENOS AIRES – Argentina will use its term as chair of the Group of 20 to promote an agenda focused on the future of work, infrastructure for development and food sustainability, President Mauricio Macri said on Thursday.

Addressing Argentine and international officials, Macri called for everyone to work together to meet “one of the greatest challenges” in his country’s history.

As it prepares to assume the G20 chairmanship on Friday, Argentina aspires “to be mediator in good faith,” the president said.

“We must make sure that the expansion of technological developments doesn’t create exclusions or adverse reactions,” he said, adding that “education is at the center of the discussion.”

To make technological advances “inclusive” will require “a great investment in training” and forging consensus among business, labor and the public sector, Macri said.

“At the G20 we will seek to develop infrastructure as a new type of asset to direct today’s savings toward transportation, sanitary services, energy, connectivity, to help make of each person a global citizen and worker of the future,” he said.

The president highlighted his country’s role as a food producer for more than 400 million people around the world and said that Argentina “is ready to make its contribution toward food security.”
