The government of Canada will continue to support Peru to improve transparency in the management of the extractive resources sector, said Patricia Fortier, Canada’s Ambassador to Peru.
“The Government of Canada seeks to support useful models that help Peru to improve efficiency and increase transparency in the management of resources from mining royalties,” said Patricia Fortier, Canada’s Ambassador to Peru.   

This index enhances other initiatives promoted and supported by Canada, such as the Partnership for Transparency and Dialogue and the EITI in Peru,” she added.

During the presentation of the national ranking of municipal good governance, Portier highlighted that even though it’s true that there are municipalities that fell in the ranking, there are several that have made broad efforts to improve the management of public resources from mining royalties.

“This index gives both local authorities and the public a basis for dialogue on how resources are used,” said Fernando Ruiz-Mier, IFC’s Regional Coordinator for Strategic Community Investment Projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. 

He also noted the importance of dialogue between communities and local governments to spur development.

It should be noted that the municipal good governance ranking is elaborated by the Improving Municipal Investment (MIM Peru) project, an initiative of the IFC supported by the Government of Canada.
