on Friday announced that the list of economic activities permitted in Peru will be extended next week and that economic revival measures will be speeded up together with covid-19 containment efforts.
"We have conducted an assessment of Phase 1, for example, some 40 mining projects have been approved, the Production Ministry has allowed access to 100% of the fishing quota, and the Housing Ministry has approved 200 real estate projects," she said.
Afterwards, the minister admitted that they were aware of the areas that needed to be improved and that phase 2 —that is about to begin— contains a component to increase the well-being of citizens, which is why activities such as technical and professional services for homes are being permitted.
Other activities include community services such as laundries, hairdressers, e-commerce, among others.

Moreover, Alva reported that the list of economic activities allowed in Peru will be extended next week —after being assessed by the corresponding commission— and that a series of improvements will be added to simplify and speed up the economic revival.
