Government critic, industrial leader Méndez meets CFK

UIA chief Héctor Méndez.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner will be meeting the head of the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) Héctor Méndez this afternoon, amid government criticism that business leaders and private-sector retailers were to blame for the rise in prices.

According to the official information, the head of state will receive UIA chief Méndez at 4.30 pm at the Olivos presidential residency. Méndez has been long questioning the government’s economic policies, even doubting about the credentials of Economy Minister Axel Kicillof for the post.

“Maybe, he felt qualified (for the job); but sometimes, reality, that tends to hit us unexpectedly, makes us try harder and harder and even then creates uncertainty about our own results,” the manufacturing leader had said back in January.

Following the gathering with Méndez, the head of state is expected to preside over the signing of an allocation contract for the building of an Andean gas pipeline. Governors of the southern provinces of Neuquén, Río Negro and Chubut – Jorge Sapag, Alberto Weretilneck and Martín Buzzi respectively -, will be taking part in the meeting.
