In this context, Sanguinetti explained the details of the Strategic Plan that the province is carrying out to diversify the productive matrix based on the generation of renewable energies, territorial planning and organization, and permanent training in view of the new opportunities and jobs that are expected in the future.
During the meeting, Carreras highlighted the importance of being able to meet with the mayors: "We presented the whole process and explained how to reach this investment opportunity, and we were also able to answer doubts and concerns regarding investments, opportunities for the Southern Region and job training".
Sanguinetti made a very positive assessment and mentioned that the mayors "came to learn first hand about all the steps that have been taken and those that still have to be done. There was an interesting debate from different points of view".
"The project will benefit the whole province, it will be focused on the Southern Region, but there are activities to be carried out in different areas and all the cities will receive benefits. Not only in labor, but also in productive, scientific and tourist activities... it is a very challenging project", he explained.
In addition, Mayor Direne said she was "committed and proud" to be the host of this debate. "It is very important that we can make our contributions, listen to our people, to the scientists, to the leaders, so that the project is the most fair in relation to the legal standards, to the care of the environment and to the work for our people", she added.
