Former INTI director accuses Giorgi of working less with poor people
December 14, 2011
National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI ) former director Enrique Martinez accused Industry Minister Debora Giorgi to have ordered him to work “less with poor people” and “more with indstries.”
He said, “Giorgi’s position contradicts the basic doctrine of national and popular movement headed by President Cristina Kirchner.”
Martinez added that his administration “since 2002 until last Saturday, might work for the needy.”
“The Ministry of Industry states that INTI now stops putting so much emphasis on the social economy to maintain a more innovation-oriented and will work closely with companies in the country to develop technological advances made in abroad and adapt to local conditions.”
“Such statements can only be made from total ignorance and prejudice, perhaps because neither the minister nor any of her core staff met with the leadership of the INTI in four years to review current policies.”
“But that’s not the worst. In fact, the minister had pointed out me some months ago that we had to work ‘less with the poor and more with the companies’.
