'Argentina does not accept any conditions set from abroad,' Boudou
Economy Minister and Vice-Presidential candidate Amado Boudou (Victory Front party), rejected the recipes for “fiscal adjustments” the international organizations intend to impose on countries affected by the crisis, and stressed that Argentina “does not accept any conditions set from abroad.”
During a rally in the 9 de Julio district, Boudou assured that the Fernández de Kirchner administration “does not accept the vision of Argentina that they are trying to impose from abroad,” and confirmed that they are thinking “about what’s coming.”
“We want to include everyone, those who think like us and those who don’t, in order to obtain what’s best for Argentina,” he said.
Boudou praised that the President’s focus on equality is “of utmost importance,” and added that “what we’ve understood is that there are no big cities or small cities, there are Argentine men and women who have Rights and needs and we must reach every corner of the country.”
In front of dozens of high school students who were presented with their own personal netbooks as part of the Conectar Igualdad social programme, Boudou recalled the measures taken by the Néstor Kirchner’s government first and now by Fernández de Kichner, who helped Argentina reverse its history by arguing with those from abroad in order to be able to invest in the country.
Boudou’s statements are in line with the criticism made by Fernández de Kirchner towards the IMF in Mendoza last Monday, when she said that the organization pretended to prescribe countries going through a crisis “with the same medicine that ruined us in 2001.”
