For the president, this income “demonstrates the state in which the country remained: 9 million Argentines who were not registered by the State”
The president, Alberto Fernández, said that the Emergency Family Income (IFE) is a solution of emergency“and that after quarantine it will begin “to work to develop the economy, production and work”.
“We do not think that the solution is to keep the IFE in eternum. What we need is that when July 17th ends this quarantine that we are going through now, we set the horizon and start working to develop the economy, production and work. That is our task and we are going to do that as soon as the quarantine is over, “said the President.
“Nor are we going to fix the problem overnight and there are going to be millions of Argentines who are going to continue to need the solidarity of the rest of society, and that is what we are going to do, we are not going to let go of them,” added the head of state.
He argued that the IFE “demonstrates the state in which the country remained, 9 million Argentines those that the State did not register, which began to register from the IFE. ”
Regarding the measures that could be implemented, Fernández said that entrepreneurs and merchants “are going to facilitate everything within the State’s reach so that they can quickly produce again, to encourage them to invest, to give work and to produce, that is what worries us the most and is what we are working on the most “.
“It is a task that in the particular case of the City of Buenos Aires and the Province we are seeing with Axel (Kicillof) and with Horacio (Rodríguez Larreta), to see how together we start the region again, which concentrates an important part of the Argentine gross product, “he added.
Finally, on the continuity of the quarantine, he explained: “We are going to see what are the results that we are going to know in the middle of this week, we are going to see how it evolves; we all want to make it more flexible, what we do not want is to make the quarantine more flexible by putting risk to the health of Argentines “.
“We do not think that the solution is to keep the IFE in eternum,” said the President.
The third stage of the IFE, with changes
The head of the National Social Security Administration (Anses), Fernanda Raverta, anticipated important changes in the third stage of Emergency Family Income (IFE) It will include areas where restrictions and quarantine isolation persist.
“In the third stage, the IFE it is not an Emergency Family Income as it was the previous one it was for everyone who had signed up, but going to go to the area where the quarantine returns to a phase 1, where the issue is more complicated in terms of respecting isolation, “said Raverta.
He noted that this aid is intended to “those who are outside the labor market income and they live off the informal economy and are not registered. ”
He recalled that “we are still in the second stage, next week is an important week because the Emergency Family Income is charged by almost 9 million Argentines; tomorrow Monday we pay for the completion of document 8 and 9 of those who were already banked and later to those without CBU. ”
“The third stage has to find us more organized, this stage has to do with some variables that we are going to cross based on geographic areas, where we are crossing quantity and population below the line of poverty, indigence and then we are going to cross it with the more productive questions of this place, if the quarantine allowed the economy to be put into operation in that place and the level of contagion “, he detailed.
“Every time the Emergency Family Income is paid, it is a new decision, which includes re-allocating a huge amount on a budget to accompany the Argentines whom the government is taking care of in the pandemic situation,” he added.
The Government is evaluating paying more to the beneficiaries but reducing the number of people who receive it
“We have to make an effort to have a population of 9 million people, some of whom work in an unregistered manner and those who do not have an income. That effort to lead the community from the State must guarantee that each one contributes his part, the State and also the third sector and the private sector, “he said.
In the country average, meanwhile, the IFE benefits 17.3% of the population. The Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (CABA, which is part of the AMBA) is the area with the lowest incidence of benefit with respect to the total population, as calculated by researchers Oscar Cetrángolo and Javier Curcio in a study on government social programs in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
