Energy and Mines Minister Francisco Ismodes affirmed Peru is expected to capture 8% of global investment in mining exploration projects by 2021.
His remarks were made in an interview with El Peruano official gazette.
For instance, the sector has shared information on recently-developed projects, which confirm investors' interest in the country
and the importance of mining resources, thus attracting capitals.
As for environmental liabilities, the official said his sector is implementing a new approach to prioritize their remediation.
Thanks to this measure, a special fund of S/155 million (around US$47 million) —that is three times the five-year budget for this task— will be available this year.
