The head of the Office of the Presidency, Alfonso Romo, generated controversy again after ensuring that the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador manages the country as if it were growing at rates of 9% and not as in reality, with an economy that is expected to collapse 9% this year, and insisted that salvation is in private investment.
“As a main message it is invite the country, the government to which I belong, to have a culture that we are in a hurry; we cannot handle a country that is decreasing close to 9% and we are managing it as if we were growing at 9%, ”he said during his participation in the XLII National Convention of the Mexican Institute of Finance Executives (IMEF).
According to the official, it is necessary to have clear rules of the game to capitalize private investment in the country, which represents 87% of total investment.
“Private investment needs to plan for the medium and long term and for this it needs certainty. We can change the rules of the game that are necessary, but once they have been changed or pre-established, they must remain and be transparent, “said the official.
Likewise, Romo stressed that the private initiative has resources that can attract foreign investment, so certainty must be ensured and the rules of the game clear, in order to enhance capitalization.
“Only with certainty, we can activate the 30,000 million dollars available for immediate investment that Amexcap comments. Only with certainty can we also activate the 1.2 trillion pesos of the bank. There is money available, we just have to work to give certainty, “he said.
But there are more controversies pointed out for Romo, having commercial interests in favor of glyphosate, a herbicide classified by the WHO as a probable carcinogen in grade II, when the same President has indicated that he wants to avoid its use distributed in the government. Víctor Manuel Toledo accused two members of the presidential cabinet of obstructing the regulation of the chemical for business interests. Those mentioned are Alfonso Romo, head of the office of the Presidency and Víctor Villalobos, secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Another controversy in which the 68-year-old man is involved caused the then Secretary of the Treasury, Carlos Urzúa, to resign from his position.
“Ideologically, Romo is a man of the extreme right. And in social terms it oscillates between Opus Dei and the Legionaries of Christ. How a man like that came to admire Augusto Pinochet already Marcial Maciel, it ended up not only being friend of López Obrador if not even being the head of the Office of the Presidency? ”, reflected Urzúa.
Private sector “the only hope to grow”: Romo insisted
“I have no doubt, despite the dialectic, that the private sector is the only hope for growth that the country has, the public sector does not have sufficient resources”Said the businessman from Nuevo León.
Romo Garza was shown with the best disposition of establish links with the Private Initiative so that the productive sectors and the government generates suitable conditions to fight poverty from Mexico with infrastructure and employment.
We are going to campaign and talk about possible Mexico, where everything is based on the private sector. And I promise to help you, as part of the government, in whatever way we can because it will be the only way to eradicate poverty is with you.
He also said that the priority will be the national private sector and recalled that the 13% of the budget proposed by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP), chaired by Arturo Herrera, it was aimed at strategic projects.
“The only thing that Mexico has to grow is private investment, especially the national one, nobody will do more for Mexico than what we Mexicans can do”, Said Romo in order to invite national firms to act jointly with the federal government.
