It is a very precious asset, which Sometimes in daily logic we forget, but in difficult moments the Uruguayan comes out ahead with that value and defends it, "said Lacalle Pou.

“Uruguay has a vocation to grow, to attract people. We don't want them to just come to invest, we want them to come live. It is not only designed for Argentina, but for the world "
