Economic Growth Not Benefiting Everyone in Argentina, President Says

BUENOS AIRES – President Mauricio Macri said on Wednesday that economic growth had not benefited everyone in Argentina.

“Economic growth has not yet reached all Argentines,” the president said during the inauguration of a public works project in Buenos Aires province, the South American country’s largest electoral district.

“After five years, Argentina is growing, but not all sectors start up at the same time. Trust me, next year we will grow more than this year,” Macri said.

As the legislative elections approach, the ruling Cambiemos party must shift its focus to “fighting injustice, corruption and, above all, resignation,” which is the most harmful attitude for the country, Macri said.

The president, flanked by Interior and Public Works Minister Rogelio Frigerio and Cambiemos senatorial candidate Gladys Gonzalez, broke ground on a project to clean up the Riachuelo River basin.

“This will be a historic project fulfilling a promise we have heard for many years but which has remained a shameful thing they made us endure,” Macri said, referring to predecessor Cristina Fernandez, who governed Argentina between 2007 and 2015 and is now an opposition Senate candidate from Buenos Aires province.
