President Cristina Fernandez de Kircher gave the DNI (National Identification Document) number 10 million while the Digital Documentation Center was inaugurated.
“When we launched [the new DNI] many minimized it and today we’re delivering the domunt number 10 million that according to the census it means that 25% of the population has a new identification document,” the president said.
“With an additional, it was made by Argentines and with an initial investment of $ 20 million. For those who remember when we set out to make the documents to the Argentine people through foreign technology with an investment of 1,200 million dollars,” she added.
“This happens when the Argentines put the body, hard work, and above all lots of love to the motherland,” Cristina said.
The center opened on 150 Leandro N. Alem Avenue, where the National Development Bank was closed to what the president added: “I believe that Argentina was closed, a huge country was closed and slowly we are starting to open all doors, everywhere and in all areas.”
The president also said that the current system has capacity for 4,000 dailies, while already its staff made 800,000 passports.
