But the glittering stage of Mendea was to be launched on November 8, 1949, the President Peron appointed him Minister of Technical Affairs. From there drove creations as the National Planning Council, the National Council Rationalization, the National Council for Scientific and Technical Research, National Research Council e1 Statistics, the National Atomic Energy Commission, the National Commission of Radioisotopes, the Argentine Antarctic Institute, the National Book Copahue, the National Patagonian Icefield and National Scientific Register. In 1950, he published his book "Justicialism", foreword by General Peron, which encapsulates the ideological principles of the political mainstream and that was translated into several languages by that date, starts under his leadership the College Peronist whose activities included the publication of the magazine "World Peronist," and the editorial of the same name. a It is likely that the culmination of the talent of this little-known Argentine, for new generations, passing through the elaboration and development of the Second Five Year Plan.
