'Farmers did not ask for devaluation', Etchevehere

President of the Rural Society Luis Miguel Etchevehere.

Rural leader Luis Miguel Etchevehere has denied farmers were fueling a devaluation saying “nobody forced the government to take the dollar to 8 pesos.” The Kirchnerite administration seeks to “blame it on others to not deal with the consequences,” he insisted.

“Farmers did not ask for the currency devaluation. Nobody forced the government to take the dollar from 6 to 8 pesos. They want to blame it on others,” the president of Argentina’s Rural Society assured and responded also to the criticism by Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich who accused “agricultural leaders” of causing the sharp drop in the Central Bank’s reserves and hoarding grains of their harvest out of “greed and speculation.”

“He (Capitanich) continues to get it wrong when he puts farmers as the enemy,” Etchevehere considered in statements to a local radio station.

“Producers know it is an act of responsibility and need to sell when it is needed. Grains will be always tied to inputs, salaries and taxes”, he explained.
