We cannot recover the investment if wages do not grow and if consumption in Argentina does not grow. "
" The main priority of economic policy in our country, in 2021, is the recovery of the real income of the Argentine men and women who, after so many years of losses, it is absolutely necessary that wages and income beat inflation ”, concluded the leader.
