Faced with false information circulating in social networks and media, relating to the work of the Del Valle de Lerma gas pipeline, the Salta Cigars Chamber informs that: the gas pipeline in the El Carrill – Coronel Moldes – La Via section is run with resources of the Special Tobacco Fund (FET), approved and controlled by resolutions of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Nation, numbers 868 of November 2010 and 368 of September 2014. It should be noted that the total investment of the work was 7,865. $ 629
The work was inaugurated on 1 August 2015 (and has been managed by GasNor S.A since then) and not only for producers, but because all the works of our sector have benefited the residents of Coronel Moldes and La Via.
We also inform that the Special Tobacco Fund (FET) is for tobacco producers and NOT for governments, according to the national law 19.800. Our funds are managed with transparency and are controlled by controlling bodies and producers.
That is why we have made it clear that this institution has in no way participated in improper payments.
