President Martin Vizcarra on Friday affirmed his administration will give the final push to Lomas de Ilo Archaeological Rescue Project, which will boost development in that area.

According to the Head of State, this initiative has a period of seven months. In this sense, he requested the regional authority to hire the necessary staff, so the goals can be fulfilled in the estimated time frame.

Furthermore, he indicated Lomas de Ilo Archaeological Rescue Project is a very old initiative that has been unjustifiably delayed over the years, noting this situation will not be repeated. 

Moreover, the top official stated this project will generate water for human and agricultural consumption, as well as for electric power, which will provide well-being for the area's families and have a positive impact in general. 

The statesman went on to add the commitment is for the construction of hydroelectric plants to begin this year in Pasto Grande. 

Remarks were made during the project's launching ceremony.

As is known, Ilo Port is located in southern Moquegua region, Mr. Vizcarra's hometown, where he served as Governor between 2011 and 2014.
