'Argentina stands firm as the world falls,' CFK
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner affirmed on Friday that Argentina was “back on its feet, with a record production rate and the best minimum wage rate throughout Latin America.” The head of State arrived to Chacabuco to celebrate the 146th anniversary of the founding of the city, and the 38th anniversary of the 'National Celebration of Corn' production.
“Argentina stands firm. We have paid 2,208 million dollars in debt because we take responsibility of our country, and our history,” said the head of State, contrasting the country from the rest of the world, which she described to moving along a “downward spiral.”
The President also presented agricultural targets stating, "we're going for 200 million tons of grain production with the 2020 Plan."
Fernández de Kirchner was accompanied by Agriculture Minister, Julián Domínguez, and Buenos Aires province governor, Daniel Scioli.
