Carlos Achetoni’s fight against “125” and criticism of Milei

The agricultural reference had taken on greater public importance during the conflict between the countryside and the then government of former president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner by Resolution 125better known as “The 125.” The initiative had been promoted by Martin Lousteau when he was Minister of Economy of the first Kirchner period, in 2008, and proposed increasing the rate of State withholdings from producers.

The initiative signed by Lousteau established a withholding scheme by which producers who exported more than 750 tons of soybeans per month had to pay the State an increased rate from 44 to 48.7%. The conflict ended with the “no positive vote” of the then vice president Julio Cobos.

“As an entity, in those times we were on the roads, managing before legislators and politicians, to prevent this modification in the withholding rate from affecting small and medium-sized producers. We asked for segmentation, in defense of the productive interior and the producers who, with our work, contributed daily to rural development and roots“, wrote Achetoni himself in March of this year, when he published a note in the newspaper Profile, 16 years after the negative vote on the resolution.

Looking to the future, he projected the changes he expected for the rural sector: “We know that the economic crisis in the country is strong and affects millions of Argentines; but As a sector that has always been first in line to contribute and contribute, we hope that withholdings will soon gradually decrease until they are eliminated. And that, as we have asked in every instance we could, a non-taxable minimum system be established that allows all producers to be reached and relieve those who have the least.”

Achetoni maintained his position since his beginnings in the activity and was critical of each government. In an interview conducted in 2018 by the site field bugs, The agricultural leader had expressed himself about his role and his concerns: “I was always motivated to be able to change the reality of the sector, because one saw the inequalities and abuses that have almost always existed in the chain. Give a hand so that producers who know how to do things do not become founded by producingthat they have an opportunity to continue developing in the rural areas of the interior of the country, something that is being suffered because we see more and more people crowded into the cordons of the big cities.”
