Gov't calls for having books printed locally, decreasing book imports

Industry Minister Debora Giorgi (left) and President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (right).

“I want most of books read by Argentines to be printed in Argentina,” President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner stated, adding that “it’s an embarrassment that 78 percent of the books we read are printed abroad.” 

The President made these statements at a printing plant, where she attended the activation of a new book binding machine, which required a $3.2 million investment.

She then announced that the Ministry of Education would introduce a bill in Congress which would look to make all the books being bought by that department Argentine-made. 

Earlier she had said she was “astounded” to know that books about Mafalda, Jorge Luis Borges and Cortázar need to be imported, when “back in the 70s Argentina was a leader in the graphic industry.”

She closed by promising she would “continue to design and create policies that help each area in the graphic industry to keep growing.”
