Macri urges businessmen to 'practice what you preach'
President Mauricio Macri today urged businessmen to “practice what you preach” and to be the first ones to design a productive agenda.
During the annual lunch offered by the Inter-American Council of Commerce and Production, where more than 400 people atended, the head of state affirmed “we are not going through an economic change, but a profound cultural change.”
“I want to help you set clear rules, reach a real equality before the law and avoid unfair competition,” he told top business executives and government officials.
"We must accept the commitment to produce more and better, so to create more employment. Argentina needs its capacities, to open and conquer markets and to make the domestic market grow,” he added warning “we must show the international community we were able to acknowledge our mistakes.”
The president referred to the zero poverty pledge, launched during his presidential campaign: “We will reduce poverty once we have created quality employment.”
"Inflation is the government’s responsibility, and we have begun to make progress towards its systematic reduction,” Macri stressed.
