After three months of silence, liaison table reiterates demand for extension of rule increasing credit costs for producers

In recent times, the liaison table has made a request to meet with the president of the Central Bank (BCRA) to discuss the impact of rising credit costs on producers and the risks posed by food imports to their livelihoods. This request came after a meeting between rural leaders who demanded a meeting with BCRA president Santiago Bausili. They were unhappy with the lack of response to their previous requests made three months ago, specifically regarding the extension of rules affecting wheat and soybean rates for producers.

The rural leaders also expressed concerns about the potential negative effects of food imports on local producers if equal conditions were not maintained. Moreover, they highlighted how excessive tax increases and new fees imposed in various districts across the country contribute to already high tax burdens faced by producers, adding to their production costs. They called on national, provincial, and municipal legislators to reconsider these tax policies and prioritize measures that support production and economic growth.

The liaison table emphasized the urgent need for fiscal measures to ease financial strain on producers and create a more favorable environment for agricultural activities. Furthermore, they expressed concern over the high cost of foot and mouth disease vaccines at the start of the vaccination campaign. They indicated that this issue would be examined in collaboration with relevant organizations to determine specific details affecting vaccine costs. The liaison table announced a consultation period within their entities to gather feedback on vaccine costs, underscoring its importance in safeguarding livestock health and supporting the agricultural sector.

In conclusion, rural leaders are calling for government intervention in addressing their concerns over rising credit costs, food imports’ risks, excessive taxes, and high vaccine prices for livestock health protection. The liaison table is working closely with other organizations to find solutions that will ease financial burden on farmers while promoting economic growth in agriculture.
