The head of state welcomed the country’s overcoming of the pandemic and added that he continues to work to confront and overcome the effects of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, as well as the measures imposed on Moscow by the West.



“Mercedes has been the protagonist of numerous policies that we have carried out all this time and has done a great job in the Federal Administration of Public Revenues (AFIP). It is a pleasure to welcome you to the National Cabinet, Mercedes”, emphasized the dignitary.
