Santa Fe, Chaco governors encourage investment
Among numerous politicians and businessmen, the Council of Americas conference in Buenos Aires hosted Santa Fe Governor Antonio Bonfatti and Chaco Governor Jorge Capitanich who gave details of their provinces’ current administration and encouraged investors to participate in their provincial projects.
“We need to offer equal opportunities for everybody, improve education quality and facilitate access to production,” Bonfatti said. “It is strategic to continue encouraging citizens’ participation because the truth is only achieved through consensus. An agreement on a national, provincial and local level is very important.”
Bonfatti defined governing as “the execution of political actions taking in account solidarity and the common good.”
“We need to have an independent judiciary and have this law implemented to promote government transparency,” he said.
Capitanich asked for “investments to give more infrastructure” to his province and detailed statistics from Chaco, which public debt used to be 363 percent of the budget but now is only 25 percent.
“We need infrastructure for the northern provinces of the country and commit ourselves to grow on a solid and sustainable way. It’s an effort to develop mechanisms that allow us to keep growing,” Capitanich said. “We are living in an unequal world so it’s important to develop better social opportunities.”
Capitanich also considered that a political project needs to have “a territorial base, clarity and political leadership, all qualities that can be measured in the PASO elections.”
