Putting the total cost of the planned 120 projects at Ar$837bn, Fernández said that “public works must be a great engine to bring work and development to the whole country… We’re doing this so that Argentina recovers its production, work, dignity, public education and public health.” Public Works Minister Gabriel Katopodis said that that in each region, the planned projects will “drive the economic sector that defines the development of that place.”
