The main event of Heading to PERUMIN - Bicentennial Edition will be broadcast in Quechua, hoping to reach a wider audience and communities involved with the development of the national mining industry. This was announced by the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers (IIMP), the official organizer of the event that will take place from September 20 to 24 with the slogan "Competitive and sustainable proposals for the development of Peru."
It is the first time that an international PERUMIN event includes Quechua as a translation alternative for its participants. This has been motivated by the increasing attendance of representatives of Quechua-speaking high Andean communities, who have direct interaction with the industry as workers, providers of various services, beneficiaries of social programs, among other aspects.
“This initiative is part of the efforts made by the IIMP and the Executive Committee of PERUMIN 35 to share knowledge about mining and foster an open debate on the development of our industry. The State, the companies and the communities need to understand each other better and reach consensus on the role that mining should assume for the sustainable development of the country ”, said the engineer Miguel Cardozo, president of Heading to PERUMIN and vice president of the IIMP.
The main event of Heading to PERUMIN will be in virtual format and with free access through its web portal and PERUMIN social networks. It will also be the setting for a first public meeting between representatives of the mining industry and government authorities. Their participation has already been confirmed by the Minister of Economy and Finance, Pedro Francke, and the Minister of Energy and Mines, Iván Merino. The invitation has also been extended to the President of the Republic, Pedro Castillo.
