Macri Welcomes Swiss Leader to Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri welcomed Swiss Federal Council President Doris Leuthard on Tuesday to the Casa Rosada presidential palace, where the two leaders discussed economic relations and bilateral trade.

Leuthard, who was elected to the rotating presidency for 2017, began her official visit to Buenos Aires on Monday.

Macri and Leuthard posed for photographs in the palace’s White Hall before starting their meeting, which was followed by a joint press conference.

“We’re happy that Argentina is once again playing a role in the world,” Leuthard told reporters.

Macri, for his part, said the Swiss leader’s visit showed “support and confidence” for the “process” that started with his election in December 2015.

Leuthard, the first Swiss president to visit this South American country, said Switzerland’s government was convinced that Argentina “is going in the right direction.”

The delegation that traveled to Buenos Aires with Leuthard included a large number of business leaders, prompting the Swiss politician to note that Switzerland “believes in the country and has plans to increase its investments.”

“We value this visit with companies that are so important in your country, many of which already have operations in Argentina and have survived the different crises, and are now playing a role in this new era,” Macri said.

The Argentine president noted the extensive bilateral cooperation in the science, innovation and technology fields, where 80 joint applied research projects are underway and “will continue to increase.”

Macri praised joint efforts to fight corruption, money laundering and tax evasion, adding that Switzerland’s assistance “has been key.”

Leuthard said Switzerland was the No. 6 investor in Argentina, noting that the Macri administration’s reforms were giving “confidence” to investors.

“Switzerland is on your side and welcomes these reforms,” Leuthard said.
