The National Government warned that it has "no plans" to change the farming sector's agenda, therefore will not meet with members of the Liaison Board amid a national strike that began on Wednesday to protest against the property tax hikes in the Buenos Aires province.

Agriculture Minister Norberto Yauhar also told farming sector leaders “that Argentina needs not to undergo moments of misunderstandings” like the ones that took place in 2008, when the Liaison Board led several grain lockouts to protest against a tax hike in soybean export duties.

“We hold sectorial meetings, not general ones. That is the way we work and we shall not change it,” Yauhar added as he met with reporters during Journalist’s Day on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the halt in sails of grain, animal and agricultural non-perishable products continues along the country, with rallies, pickets and meetings and is expected to end midnight next Tuesday.
