The Buenos Aires Governor Axel Kicillofannounced this Tuesday the launch of the program Buenos Aires Creates. This is a credit line designed by the Housing Institute and the Ministry of Habitat and Urban Development and implemented by Banco Provincia with the aim of improving homes. Son three lines of credit: Minor Refurbishments, Major Refurbishments and Expansion for buildings already built. According to estimates from the Buenos Aires government, 80% of the housing problem in the province has to do with a qualitative and not a quantitative demand. That is, houses that exist but require improvement. There is priority for vulnerable sectors. 20 billion pesos will be disbursed. During his speech, from the city of Alberti, re-exposed the differences with the Buenos Aires administration in the middle of the discussion of funds and the contribution and consumption of dollars. Since the Larreta government, he has been the chief of staff, Philip Michael, who answered that “they are obsessed with CABA”and that in the last five years “la City generated, on average, almost 7,400 million dollars per year”.

The issue of contributions and consumption of dollars in a context of a lack of US currency in the country had recently been put on the table by the vice president, Cristina Kirchner. During an act in Ensenada, the president of the Senate assured that the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires is the jurisdiction “what more spends dollars and does not produce”, with a negative trade balance of US$ 7 billion, and that there are nine provinces in Argentina that “produce more dollars than they consume for their work or productive apparatus”, and added that among these 9 provinces, “the first 5 They are Santa Fe, Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Chubut and Santa Cruz”. The data released by CFK had been questioned by the head of government, Horacio Rodriguez Larreta. “Cristina Kirchner’s data is wrong. LThe City generates 7,000 million dollars per year in services that it did not take into account”.

Now, the counterpoint was replicated again, but between Philip Michael and Kicillof. During the presentation of the Buenos Aires Crea program, the president weighed the productive capacity of the province of Buenos Aires over the administrative and financial volume that -the governor maintained- is preponderant in the City of Buenos Aires. “It’s nonsense” Miguel answered.

In his speech, the president also charged against the so-called media and management “porteñismo”. Recounting that in Alberti they advanced with the creation of a slaughter room for chickens, pigs and rabbits, the president assured: “Someone from the Obelisk would not understand this, they would never understand it. But in our province of Buenos Aires we have a productive capacity. I refer to the City of Buenos Aires simply because the channels that are seen the most are the ones from Buenos Aires. These things interest three belines, they do not understand them”.

“The City of Buenos Aires is a city where financial and administrative activities are carried out. Sometimes the largest companies operating in the province have their company registered in the City and pay taxes there. The province of Buenos Aires does the material work, the production. We are very proud to be the province that produces the most, we do not have to be the most glamorous, nor the one that most resembles Europe: we are the province that produces the most”crossed differentiating itself from the administration of Rodríguez Larreta.
