Industrial sector worried about what the president says in his weekly addresses, according to Francisco Alarcon
“The country faces a very difficult economic situation. The president himself has recognized it and it is good that the truth is told, that’s good. Faced with this, the defense of employment and investment must be sought. If we listen to the last weekly address, confrontation is being encouraged, we will not get into that confrontation,” noted the president of the Chamber of Industries of Guayaquil, Francisco Alarcon. He recalled that the private sector provides 75% of jobs.
“Within this context, we do not find meaning in reviving the bills that have been rejected by all citizens, at a time when ministers are promoting public-private partnerships, resuming dialogue with the productive sectors, it is contradictory that one, two days after those meetings confrontation comes again and put in the spotlight so controversial laws … they will not come now, they will come in 2017, I do not know who will fatten the pig to take 2017 away,” he said.
It is very important to remain calm and attract investment, and that is done with clear and stable rules, and some of the ads that caught our attention in the weekly address is that laws and regulations will be changed as often as necessary.
“Policy instability almost became an announcement,” and that goes against all the efforts that have been made last week by Minister Nathalie Cely.
