Renewal Front lawmaker Sergio Massa met today with anti-government farming sectors gathered in the Mesa de Enlace alliance and presented a bill that reduces tax pressure on various agricultural products.

The meeting took place in General Madariaga, where Massa talked with representatives of Argentina's Rural Society, the Argentine Rural Confederations, the Argentine Agrarian Federation and Coninagro, about suspending taxation on wheat, rice, oats, and all regional economy exports.

“If we reduce tax pressure on the agrarian sector, we will increase production and export levels, and obtain dollars to stabilize the economy”, Massa said.

The Renewal Front leader added that the bill will be presented in Congress by lawmakers Felipe Solá and Gilberto Alegre.

“We are happy to see that Massa will fulfill his campaign promises”, said head of the Argentine Agrarian Federation Eduardo Buzzi.

Back in 2008, the Mesa de Enlace defied the President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s administration with a 129-day lockout over export taxes.
