The Executive Committee of PERUMIN 35 Mining Convention and the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers (IIMP) will hold a virtual event from Apurímac, this June 23 and 24, that aims to analyze the social and economic impact generated by mining in that region, as well as the prospects for its sustainable development.
“Mining for development in Apurímac”, as the event will be named, will address issues related to the potential of the mining project portfolio in the region, in addition to analyzing the strategic infrastructure plans and the development opportunities generated by the canon and royalties.
“Apurímac is the region that finances the greatest number of mining projects in Peru. With a total of USD 10,243 million of planned investment, the series of opportunities that this industry brings for territorial and social development in this region should be emphasized. PERUMIN thus fulfills its task of offering a space for analysis of mining and national development, as well as highlighting the viability of various projects to boost the regional and national economy,” said Miguel Cardozo, president of Heading to PERUMIN.
The event will have plenary sessions of two hours each (from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm) and will be streamed on PERUMIN and IIMP social networks. It will be attended by national, regional and sectoral authorities, as well as ministers of Energy and Mines, Economy and Finance, and Transport and Communications.
It should be noted that the virtual event from Apurímac is part of the activities of Heading to PERUMIN, Bicentennial edition "Generating prosperity for Peruvians."
It consists of decentralized sessions, which include not only Apurímac, but also the regions of Arequipa, Áncash and Cajamarca. The objective of the program is to promote spaces for dialogue on the role that the mining industry should play in the context of the crisis generated by the pandemic and with the aim of achieving, in the longer term, sustainable territorial development throughout the country.
PERUMIN is the most important mining event in Latin America and is considered the second most important mining event globally, which, together with the role our country plays as a producer of various metals, has positioned Peru as a meeting point for the mining industry. This is due to its high level of attendance, which involves international delegations, government authorities, company representatives, professionals and technicians in the sector, members of the academy, etc. Heading to PERUMIN establishes a program of activities for the 35th edition of the Mining Convention, which is scheduled for September 2022.
