In the presence of Matas Lammens, Minister of Tourism and Sports of the Nation; Juan Monteverde, candidate for Mayor (Ciudad Futura); and Mariano Romero, candidate for City Council (Evita Movement), the meeting took place this afternoon at the Neighborhood Clubs Meeting at Club Banco de Santa Fe. Lammens explained, “The best way to take care of them is to The special thing about boys is that they stay in the clubs and learn the rules of living together there. Instead of being on the streets, they can join a club and society through sport.”
“We are early to inaugurate a railway museum and a sports playground in Pérez. Now we come to Rosario to highlight the importance of sport and the role of clubs in social terms. The boys who are in the clubs today will be better adults tomorrow. I believe that the state must not only be present but also intelligent,” explained Matas Lammens, the country’s Minister of Tourism and Sports, to LT8’s mobile phone.
At the same time, he pointed out, “We have invested 3,500 million pesos in 5,000 neighborhood clubs.” As a minister, I had to travel around Argentina. The best way to take care of these children and allow them to grow up without fear is if they are in the clubs, if they learn the rules of living together, and if they are not alone on the streets, they can do sports and integrate into a club.”
In this sense, the national official said, “Rosario has a long club tradition; many internationally known players have left this city.” The national state has made enormous efforts this whole time”. And later he added: “One of the programs that we are developing in our ministry is ‘Hay Equipo’, where the state pays a scholarship to every boy who can and wants to practice a sport continuously.”
Finally, referring to the pre-trip program, Lammens stressed: “Tourism has become an industry that generates foreign exchange; in our country, we have had a record number of absorbable tourists.” Many foreign tourists have visited us; these dollars are used by our country to complete payments to the IMF. We end the year with a list of Argentines who have traveled all over the country. There are some government policies that need to be governed by everyone because they are public policies.”
