For Sergio Massa, "the patriotic goal is to build an economy without inflation"

For Sergio Massa, "the patriotic goal is to build an economy without inflation"

The Economy Minister pointed out that “the only bomb that the Argentine economy has is the one represented by Macri’s agreement with the IMF.”

The Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, remarked this Sunday that the “patriotic goal is to build an economy without inflation,” He announced that they are working on instruments that ensure access to credit for companies and individuals, and that they will convene the Liaison Table in the coming days to follow “region by region” the impact of the drought.

“What I want to make clear is the concept that the improvement in income is with a reduction in inflation, with improving the credit capacity of the worker and with parities that beat inflation,” Massa said in statements to Infobae. He also assured that “the patriotic objective is to build an economy without inflation, a problem of the Argentine economy in the last 40 years.”

On the other hand, in an interview also published this Sunday in El Cohete a la Luna, he pointed out that “To break this culture of dollarization that we Argentines have -which is deeply rooted in us- we must generate investment instruments associated with the goods that we Argentines producegas, corn, copper, with savings and investment instruments, which can be a guarantee for savers who mistrust the financial system”.

He remarked that “Recovering income has three legs: lowering inflation, recovering parities against inflation in the distributive discussion, but the third thing, and perhaps the most important and our responsibility this year, is associated with people’s access to credit.”

“We have millions of Argentines in category 3, 4 and 5” in reference to the classification of the debtor made by the banks and that in these cases correspond to users of medium risk, with high risk of insolvency and in the last case they qualify as unrecoverable.

He insisted that “We have millions of Argentines who, when they look at their card balance and their credit capacity at the bank, find that they are on the ceiling. We must work on instruments that improve people’s access to credit.”

The meeting will discuss the impact of flour and wheat in the sector

For this reason they are working with the Central Bank to “see how we can find utility for what up to now is a less than virtuous liability for Argentina, which is the Leliq.”

He insisted that “meaning must be found in the work articulated with the formal financial system and also with the financial system that appears laterally today.”

“The financial system linked to electronic instruments, to the sectors of the social economy (cooperatives, mutuals) that somehow, especially in the interior of the country, generate a strong impact on the credit market. It seems to me that we must work on it and that you have to put a lot of head into it in February,” he added.

Regarding the drought and the situation of the agro-industrial sector He indicated that in the coming days he will convene the Liaison Table to propose a 90-day follow-up “sector by sector and economy by economy, looking at the satellite maps of rainfall, looking at INTA’s satellite maps of soil moisture, and comparing the fall of profitability 2022 against 2023”.

“The first thing to look at is the damage to Argentine producers,” the minister remarked to point out that in the case of wheat, the harvest of 14.7 million tons exceeded forecasts of between 9 and 11 million.

“It’s less than what could have been a good crop, but It is not the catastrophe that was feared“, he indicated in dialogue with The Rocket to the Moon.

As for soybeans “We estimate that the impact of rain from last weekend until the 21st will give us enough soil moisture to have a good harvest throughout the year,” he commented.

On the other hand, and consulted by Infobae about the statements of former President Mauricio Macri for whom the current government is leaving “bombs” that will explode in the next administration, Massa replied that “The only bomb that the Argentine economy has is the one represented by Macri’s agreement with the IMF, a bomb that must be managed and that in some way limited the growth capacity of the Argentine economy”.

“The agreement with the Fund was used by the previous government to finance capital flight and not to build hospitals, bridges, to develop construction, for technological development. In other words, they financed the outflow of money to accounts in the United States or in other countries. And the truth is that this is very bad for our economy,” he recalled.

He also pointed out that what is important in terms of “debts that pass from one government to another” is that “we have the ability to be serious, because it is people’s savings that form part of the public debt, whether in bonds of the Treasury or in Leliqs, which are neither more nor less than what you put in the bank in a fixed term transformed into a savings instrument of the Central Bank”.

“We did not put our heads in a well, but we faced the problem of the debt with the Fund and we had the ability to channel it and find a solution for the Argentine economy, because the State is one, it does not matter who governs at that moment, it is Argentina and it seems to me that we must have a statesman’s vision in that and not a tiny vision of seeing how a government is blocked from accessing the capital market just because it wants to win an election,” he asserted.
