“He doesn’t go because he considers it a place close to Together for Change.” With that phrase, La Libertad Avanza canceled the chances of Javier Milei attending the traditional IDEA Colloquium, the business meeting that will begin tomorrow in Mar del Plata.

Milei still appears in the official meeting program: on Friday at 9 in the morning and with two designated interviewers, Verónica Andreani and Santiago Mignone, PwC executive and president of this year’s Colloquium, number 59. Although the organizers of the business meeting they assure that they will “wait for it until the last minute” and believe that there is some chance that the libertarian will change his mind, his presence seems to be ruled out.
But Milei will be in Mar del Plata during those hours. One day before, on Thursday, she will be the exclusive protagonist of a closed lunch. “It is not a counter-summit, we organized it four months ago, long before the PASO result,” said banker Juan Nápoli, candidate for senator of La Libertad Avanza and host of the closed meeting that will be held on the rooftop of the Furia restaurant.

Nápoli, president of Valo (Banco de Valores), is a regular at IDEA and wants to make it clear that this is not a “counter event”, despite the coincidence of the dates. “Javier will have his reasons for not going to the Colloquium, but the lunch is a closed meeting, like those organized by other companies these days,” he explained in dialogue with Infobae.

According to La Libertad Avanza sources, there will be about 50 businessmen. Among them, Martín Cabrales, Patricio Supervielle, Marcelo Figueiras (Richmond Laboratories), Guillermo Cerviño (Comafi), Rodrigo Fernández Prieto and Daniel Funes de Rioja (UIA), among others.
