Alberto Fernández vindicated his “fight against the Fund”: “When the adjustments arrived, our people suffered”
In an act in Morón, the president Alberto Fernandez today presented the national vaccination campaign against Covid-19 aimed at the educational community, which seeks “make the school a safe place and guarantee attendance at the beginning of the school year”, according to what was officially reported. Sitting next to him was the Chief of Staff, John Manzur, amid rumors that he could leave the leadership of the ministers before the end of the summer.
There, the president spoke about the negotiation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) by the external debt, still not resolved. Considering that they cannot be “repeat stories in economic matters”, justified the lack of agreement: “That’s why our fight, no matter how upset some are, with the IMF. where we say that we have to have the right to grow, according to how we believe we should grow. To have memory, simply to have memory. And remember, in that case, that when the adjustments arrived, our town suffered”.
While definitions of the main economic problem facing his administration are delayed, Fernández insisted: “Just remember 2001, what it meant for Argentina. Remember that the closest adjustment that the Fund requested from Argentina it made the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Science and Technology disappear. It caused the loss of three central bastions for the development of a State and a society”.
The event began at noon at the “Diego Armando Maradona” Municipal Micro-stadium and was attended by the Minister of Education, Jaime Perczyk; the Secretary of Access to Health, Sandra Tirado; and the local mayor, Lucas Ghi.
This campaign is intended for primary and secondary school students; to their families: and to teachers and non-teachers at all levels. At the moment, 77.4% of children and adolescents already have at least one dose and 56.6% have completed their vaccination schedule, as officially reported.
During his visit to Morón, Fernández will also visit a Progresar point.
