Everyone knows it, because those who receive the offer know how we are projecting the development of the economy in the following time. Some in Argentina do not want to read the plan, but that is another topic. Everyone knows what we are talking about. “

And he added: “When we help the provinces and the people, we are aware that we are weakening our fiscal situation. But I always tell Juan (Manzur) and my ministers that the only thing I celebrate is that the pandemic is going to force us to build another country. ”
