—approved by the Executive Branch via Supreme Decree— will allow increased investments in all regions nationwide, President Martin Vizcarra affirmed on Friday.
Likewise, the statesman indicated that agriculture requires starting the 2020-2021 season supported by the improvement of irrigation channels throughout the country
. Consequently, sufficient resources were allocated, so that the Agriculture Ministry
performs the corresponding maintenance through executing units.
"We are going to guarantee a good harvest from this agricultural program, while also generating jobs," he continued.
Furthermore, the leader said that —in the Housing and Construction sector— it is necessary to build more homes, improve roads
, as well as sidewalks in various cities and also continue to narrow the urban sanitation gap to guarantee access to drinking water
in the most remote areas.
Concerning the Transport and Communications sector, around 50,000 kilometers of neighborhood roads will receive maintenance to enhance accessibility from agricultural areas to large consumer cities. Thus, he stressed that this effort will generate half a million jobs.
"With this additional million, we are going to meet the demand that has been generated by these nearly 100 days of state of emergency, which has caused a decline in economic growth
and which we are now going to reverse with the measures taken," he stated.
