CFK: 'Consumers should start defending themselves'
Cristina Fernández de Kirchner maintained today that customers and consumers “have to start to defend themselves,” during a ceremony at the Government House after she signed an agreement with governors for the construction of 17,000 new homes.
The president was leading a ceremony before governors and ministers, holding video conferences with Campana, Mar del Plata and Rosario – official sources said.
“People should start to use their power as consumers, because if you don’t defend yourself, nobody is going to defend you,” the head of state added.
The head of state mentioned to businesses along the Atlantic coast, saying that they “have acclimatized prices” to fit the touristic season.
Fernández de Kirchner signed an agreement with governors from 14 provinces for the construction of 17,000 new homes.
“There is a 26 percent unemployment rate in Spain – something that should spark all of our attention.”
“We have to ground ourselves with an attitude that will allow us to achieve agreements with ease.
“We need to ensure agreements be signed without shouting, negativity and coming together” on solutions for the country, she added.
