The Government of Peru is preparing to submit the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement text to the Congress of the Republic for its debate and ratification, Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Magali Silva informed.
“We have embarked on an internal process to head the TPP to the Parliament, but we have no control over the time (required for its approval), because we are subject to the Congress agenda,” she indicated.
According to Silva, the government has not set a date to submit the document to the Legislative Power, but they are working on it.
“The Congress debate and consultation process will take place when they feel that it is appropriate, according to their internal agenda,” she stated.
Access to Internet
On the other hand, Minister Silva clarified the TPP does not change Peruvian rights to Internet access.
“It is also true Peruvians must learn to respect copyright; in fact, we have an internal regulation to do so that encourages us to recur to Indecopi when copyrights are infringed.
