The head of the Cabinet of Ministers, Juan Manzur, signed a technical cooperation agreement this Wednesday with the head of the General Sindicatura de la Nación, Carlos Montero, which will allow the exchange of information on the companies that are members of the national public sector, in order to improve the transparency and quality of management and promote the optimization of processes and procedures in these entities.
Manzur described as “fundamental” the “agreements like the one we signed today, to improve the efficiency of management” and assured that “optimizing the performance of State agencies is key to continue working for the benefit of Argentines in each corner of the country,” reported the Chief of Staff in a statement.
Montero highlighted, in turn, that the agreement “enhances decision-making” since “joint work between State agencies is essential to guarantee efficient management in the 99 State companies, where SIGEN has a presence from the trustees that he appoints”, and said that the exchange of information “strengthens the transparency of the State”.
We continue working for a present State that benefits every Argentine and Argentine.
