Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra on Saturday highlighted mining investments will exceed US$15 billion in 2018 and contribute to the Inca country's economic reactivation.
• Toquepala Expansion Project (US$1.2 billion).
• Marcona Expansion Project (US$1.3 billion).
• Mina Justa Project (US$1.3 billion).
• Corani Project (US$580 million).
• Pampa de Pongo Project (US$2.5 billion).
Thus, mining and hydrocarbon industries denote an opportunity towards achieving development
in the Inca country.
Yet, said activities cannot be conducted without a social- and environmentally-responsible commitment, he pointed out.
The top official went on to add that not only major mining operations are important; small-scale and artisanal mining activities are also relevant.
In this sense, the Head of State affirmed efforts will be aimed at achieving their insertion into the economy, while relying on an environment-friendly
approach, guaranteeing people's safety, and seeking mining formalization in a decentralized manner.
