on Friday affirmed that the Wastewater Treatment System Project for Lake Titicaca Basin (PTAR Titicaca) will boost the development of productive and tourist activities in the southern city of Puno.
"It is clear that having a cleaner lake will enable tourism activities to be developed. This will attract more jobs and improvements for all of you," Alva expressed.
The concessionaire will operate wastewater treatment plants in 10 provinces located around the area.
"They have waited a long time for this project, which includes the intervention by 10 treatment plants (…), and I am proud to be here starting this great project," she said.
National Infrastructure Plan
"As a Government, we are committed to executing the plan very promptly because it is the mechanism that will help close the gaps
, as required so much by our population in order to improve their productivity and make Peru more competitive," Alva stated.
"In this country, there is much to be done, but we will only be able to move forward if we work together: the company, the regional government, the ministries, and the mayors (...). I commit to making our greatest effort, so that the PTAR Titicaca Project will run within the expected deadlines," she added.
Natural gas to arrive in Puno soon
The minister noted this project will be joined by others —such as the gas massification project
— with the purpose of generating greater well-being among the population of Puno.
