Employers and the government see with faith the draft law on public-private partnerships. Both need resources in a scenario of a tough economy.
The Executive branch has already done its part. Last week it sent the bill as urgent economic -it must be processed in 30 days or less- to the Assembly and the discussion starts today.
The ministers of Production, Nathalie Cely; Economic Policy, Patricio Rivera; and the director of the Internal Revenue Service, Ximena Amoroso will arrive to the Economic Development Commission of the legislative branch. The three will defend the text that “facilitates the joint work” of the state and the private sector.
According to the draft law, the body will have as the highest representative the holder of the Coordinating Ministry of Production. Among its members with full voting also are the head of the Secretariat of Planning and the Minister of Economic Policy. The private sector has no participation.
