Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri spoke yesterday at the Miami Herald’s Americas Conference 2009 and shared his vision for Argentina’s future. Macri, who appeared in a panel discussion with journalist Andres Oppenheimer and Buenos Aires Province Governor Daniel Scioli, was critical of mistakes made over the past 20 years. According to Poder Magazine, “Macri told those present that his work will be concentrated on ‘trying to reverse two decades of neglect and lack of investment.'” Macri pointed to Brazil and Chile as regional models and cited the need for increased food & mineral production, greater tourism promotion and stronger, more transparent institutions if Argentina is going to be competitive going forward in the global marketplace.
