In an event in the city of Salto, Lima, which recognized the ideological differences with the libertarian Argentine president, he highlighted that “Javier Mileiwas the only one who did what had to be done to narrow the exchange gap and make the coast rebound,” El País reported.

“There were no measures by the Uruguayan government,” he complained and insisted on the lack of border policies to mitigate the negative impact on the Uruguayan coast left by the devaluation of the Argentine peso during 2023.

“Hundreds of jobs were lost, dozens of businesses closed along the entire coast, everything happened, while the national government took a nap, but Milei had to come to do something,” said Lima, who launched herself into the Front Broad without the presence of party leaders.

In the first three months of the libertarian government, the economic measures adopted by Milei have had a recovery impact on commercial activity on the Uruguayan coast.

Retail sales in January had already recovered by 20%, while in areas such as pharmacies and service stations the best was 30%, according to the Salto Trade and Industry Center.

The price gap between Argentina and Uruguay It had its maximum peak during 2023 after the post-STEP devaluation, reaching almost 200%, but is currently at 96% according to the latest border price index prepared by the UCU Salto Economic Observatory and which was released at the beginning of February.
