For its part, in the inauguration of the interim presidency of the mechanism, Argentina proposed 15 points to work on in the coming months, among them the post-pandemic phase, spatial cooperation, progress in deepening educational integration, strengthening institutions, the democracy and anti-corruption agenda and strengthening regional interdependence, among others. .
The Argentine Foreign Minister, Santiago Cafiero, considered the society to be a forum designed for the region, a region of peace, where integration is not a technocratic mechanism but a tool based on popular sentiment.
