The President of Argentina, Mauricio Macri, will participate this Wednesday at the opening of a plant that will produce steel pipes seamless in the State of Texas, United States. It is expected that the plant generates 1,500 jobs for U.S. citizens, which has been subject of controversy in Argentina.
The work in question was performed by italo-Argentinian Paolo Rocca and overcame a cost of two billion dollars. Investment of this plant was performed by the Group Techint, led by Rocca, who serves as a link between the Argentine Government and the U.S. oil companies and hundreds of Argentine workers of their production plants within the nation that fired the previous year.

The inauguration of this factory sparked controversy in Argentina, where the industry is affected by the suspension of more than half a million jobs formal and informal in just 16 months, as well as the opening to imports as the Government’s policy.
In Argentina the oil companies, rather than investing in excavations already open, decided to bring oil from abroad and then refine it in the distilleries of the nation, by being more economical.
One of the voices who expressed concern was the former argentina President Cristina Fernández, who through the network social Twitter lamented that the company will not benefit to Argentine workers.
