Montevideo, Nov 9 (EFE) .- The president of Uruguay, Tabaré Vázquez, said that in recent years Uruguay grew more than Argentina and Brazil and that, in part, it was thanks to the Government of the ruling coalition, Frente Amplio (FA). P>
"We grew to such an extent that Uruguay is the country with the highest per capita income per capita in Latin America," said the president in an interview with FA himself that the political left wing spread through its social networks. p>
Vázquez explained that currently the country is in "$ 17,000 per year per person" and that the goal is to reach the "$ 20,000 per year per person" before the end of its current term of government, in 2020. p>
"When the FA arrived at the Government (for the first time, in 2005) had tailwind, but so did Brazil and Argentina had it, which produce the same thing that we produce, they specialize in the same and they are more economically powerful and did not grow as Uruguay grew, "the president added. p>
Vázquez, who is also an oncologist by profession, explained that the key to this success lies in the transformations that the FA made in the agricultural and livestock land. p>
In this sense, he emphasized that the traceability of Uruguayan cattle contributed an "added value" to the production of the meat as well as the "tremendous" reforms suffered by the agricultural sector. p>
"Uruguay is one of the countries that have the highest level of yield of grain production and has done so based on a rational and intelligent work, "added the Uruguayan. p>
With respect to the political agenda of the FA for the future, Vázquez stressed the importance that will be given to the system education and health, as well as the development of public policies and care for the environment in the country.
