The industrial sector of San Juan is expectant in relation to legislative support for the Bases Law and the RIGI, but they are also attentive to the strong impact of the increase in essential taxes for the activity, among them, gas.

The vice president of the Industrial Union of San Juan, Hugo Goransky, said at a press conference that “we had asked for all these increase measures to be gradual. We understand that there is an economic reality but there has to be a tax reduction because if there is a reduction in subsidies and on the other hand, there is no tax reduction, especially for SMEs it is difficult to absorb all these increases.”

He highlighted that “I believe that for there to be products, energy and gas, of course the networks have to be in good condition. But today the SMEs that generate 80% of the jobs and we must see that there is a tax reduction so that these subsidies that were removed suddenly, allow them to be absorbed.”

On the other hand, when consulted by Diario La Provincia SJ about the situation of the industry in the country and in San Juan, he highlighted that “it is a difficult situation. There is undoubtedly a reduction in activity, but on the other hand we believed, and believe, that having predictability and lower rates, at some point, and if there is a lower tax, we will be able to sell products and we will not sell taxes.”

He stressed that “incentives are needed so that industries can work and so that there is greater activity. We will also have to see, with respect to the opening of imports, that there are clear rules so that for the industries that produce, taxes are lowered and not It is more convenient for them to import than to produce, because there is also job creation.
