Juan José Aranguren, former Minister of Energy during Mauricio Macri’s presidency, criticized the tariff segmentation relaunched by Economy Minister Silvina Batakis and Energy Secretary Darío Martínez. “Many injustices will be generated,” the former official noted.

“Mistakes keep repeating themselves, the consequences of which we have already experienced. Prices are distorted with tariff segmentation, in the long run it ends up being harmful,” the former minister said.

Regarding the tariff subsidy, Aranguren launched: “We are paying it the same way. But how can it be that with controlled energy tariffs we have this inflation? Since we don’t have enough energy, we have to import it and face the costs, they are paying in a tip. “.

“Mistakes that we have already experienced continue to repeat themselves. Prices are distorted, in the long run it ends up being harmful. What we need to do is that energy has the real perceived valuehow much it costs to produce it. To subsidize vulnerable families, there must be a federal social rate, “the former energy minister noted.

“It is not possible to sustain it over time because we are not saudi arabia, that we have a lot of energy, there could be a state policy to give energy. In 2020, production fell as demand fell. It is false that energy production decreased during the Macri administration“, the former Macri official defended himself in dialogue with Radio Continental.

“We have no policies that give certainty to who will invest. We need to become exporters of energy, which will allow us to generate foreign currency. What is being adjusted is the cost of energy, not the cost of its distribution. There will certainly be many injusticesSummarizes Aranguren.

“In the medium term, the best thing will be that the bill shows how much it costs to generate that energy. If you have to subsidize a vulnerable sector, you have to do it in a tangible and direct way,” concluded the prime minister.

Aranguren instead referred to the obstacles for the Néstor Kirchner gas pipeline: «This government did absolutely nothing and in December 2020 decided to repeal the decree that had launched the tender for the Néstor Kirchner gas pipeline. It is a risky investment ¿Why give it to the state and not to private individuals?
