President Javier Milei signed the May Pact today with 18 governors at the Casa Histórica in Tucumán, where he gave a national message in which he also announced the creation of a “May Council” to promote the reforms of that agreement in Congress.

Milei said that the 10 points of the Tucumán Pact “are basic, unalterable laws of the economy” and “unobjectionable mathematics,” noting: “When we obeyed these principles as a nation, we did so well in such a short time that we were the envy of the entire world.”

The head of state announced that “economic shamanism is over” and stressed that “we must do what has worked all over the world.”

Milei led the event at the Historic House of San Miguel de Tucumán, where she gathered provincial leaders, ministers and national legislators.

The signing of the document had been scheduled for May 25, but was delayed due to the legislative debate on the Bases law and the fiscal package.

Milei said that “the defense of property is the defense of a right and the path to economic growth,” and promised that the government will “pursue an aggressive agenda of economic deregulation.”

For the president, the signing of the Tucumán Pact is, “after so much division,” a “symbol of the change of era,” which is why he questioned the governors who did not attend due to “ideological blinders” and for not wanting to “give up their privileges.”

“We do not look back or hold grudges, the only thing that politics has to do is bring ideas to reality,” he said.

In his speech, the national leader considered that “a small State with limited functions is worth more than a large State that squanders resources and blocks prosperity.”

“As a national government, we have demonstrated our commitment by making the largest reduction in public spending in the nation’s history. Those who signed this document took responsibility for doing the same in their districts,” he stressed.

He also noted that Argentina “has to stop being a tax hell for those who work, strive and invest.”

“The reduction of the State must be accompanied by a reduction in the fiscal system of the economy,” he said, questioning the “fiscal voracity.”

The governors Raúl Jalil (Catamarca), Leandro Zdero (Chaco), Ignacio Torres (Chubut) and Martín Llaryora (Córdoba) were present. Also present were Gustavo Valdés (Corrientes), Rogelio Frigerio (Entre Ríos), Carlos Sadir (Jujuy), Alfredo Cornejo (Mendoza), Hugo Passalacqua (Misiones) and Rolando Figueroa (Neuquén). Also signing were Alberto Weretilneck (Río Negro), Gustavo Sáenz (Salta), Marcelo Orrego (San Juan), Claudio Poggi (San Luis), Maximiliano Pullaro (Santa Fe), Gerardo Zamora (Santiago del Estero) and Osvaldo Jaldo (Tucumán), in addition to the head of the Buenos Aires government, Jorge Macri.
