The municipalities José Luis Bustamante y Rivero and Jacobo Hunter, located in the department of Arequipa, will be present at PERUMIN 35, a world-class mining event to be held at the Cerro Juli Convention Center, in Arequipa, from September 26 to 30, 2022.
This was announced by Carlos Diez Canseco, general manager of the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers (IIMP), during his visit to the Cerro Juli venue, located between these two Arequipa districts which will be the hosts to the thousands of visitors who will attend the mining conclave.
“We have cordially extended the invitation to the mayors of both districts to participate with a space in the EXTEMIN fair and to show their work, tourist attractions, and other activities they have been carrying out to the thousands of visitors who will attend,” he said.
Diez Canseco pointed out that it is very important for local, regional, and national authorities to attend this event, where students, professionals, and investors from across the globe will convene.
He also remarked that this edition of PERUMIN will adhere to all the necessary safety protocols to guarantee the health and care of all the participants. “We are going to comply with the current regulations for big events: vaccines, negative COVID-19 tests, room capacity limits, ventilation, disinfection, and social distancing,” he said.
The IIMP’s representative also mentioned that PERUMIN 35 will be a zero-carbon footprint event, with lectures translated into Quechua. There will also be a virtual mine. As for the topics to be addressed, there will be analyses on gender and diversity issues, as well as an agenda on energy-related matters.
PERUMIN’s 35th edition will have the slogan “Building together a greater Peru”, under which it seeks to promote our country’s opportunities for socio-economic development, address the challenges facing the mining sector, and broaden new scientific and technical knowledge.
Thus, this mining convention includes events like the Mining Summit, a platform for high-level dialogue about the opportunities and challenges of Peruvian mining; the TIS Forum, a program to exchange knowledge and technical training; and EXTEMIN, a technological exhibition fair.
There will also be other events, like the International Meeting, a dialogue among mining countries about innovation and sustainability actions; PERUMIN Inspira, the program to recognize social startups; and PERUMIN Hub, the open and collaborative innovation program for mining.
