    He talks and talks but never DOES anything either about infrastructure or education. Isnt the Presidency supposed to be the executive branch of government? He seems more interested in the side issues of legalizing marijuana, abortion and gay marriage than the real problems that our country faces and will face

    “ lack of sufficient roads and ports infrastructure, the price and supply of energy and lack of qualified labour.” - just a couple of minor items to fix then. Come on Pepe, put your back in to it.

    Shame about Uruguay's close “association” with argieland. Also a shame about the “association” with venezuela. And Brazil. You are known by the people you associate with. Corrupt, criminal argieland. Tyrannical, dictatorial venezuela. Unscrupulous Brazil.

    They need to reinstate the railways and get them working and transporting goods around the country. Far more efficient than building more roads.
