Scioli: 'There were attempts to seed uncertainty'
The governor of the Buenos Aires province Daniel Scioli today affirmed it is “important” to give foreign investors “predictability and confidence” and stated Argentina offers a future of opportunities, because it is making progress on several pending issues.
In an interview the governor gave to a local radio from New York, he stressed "this is a moment for us to help counteract the dynamic some issues of the economic and institutional life of the country have had, after some sought to seed uncertainty.” “I have the responsibility to rule 40% of the population, which is a country inside another country,” he added.
Scioli delivered a lecture in New York invited by the Council of the Americas with the aim at promoting productive investments in the province of Buenos Aires.
He said he talked to investors about the possibility of reaching a deal with Repsol, of settling the ICSID investment disputes, the holdouts case in the US, and the debt talks with the Paris Club.
"The government is working on all these issues. As long as we can inform about this progress, we will be able to invigorate investments needed for the productive system,” Scioli warned.
