The series of conferences of the decentralized event Rumbo a PERUMIN continues in July. In the next session, the study “Socio-economic impact of mining in the Arequipa, Moquegua, and Tacna corridor” will be presented, including the evolution of findings recorded over the recent years and a future forecast.
The presentation will be given by Rudy Laguna, director of the Center for Competitiveness and Development (CCD). He will be accompanied by a panel of renowned experts to further discuss and analyze the topic.
Some of the factors on which the mining activity has a positive impact are job creation, dynamization of other economic sectors, tax collection, fiscal redistribution (canon) and mining royalties, and improvement of access to basic utility services, all of which results in poverty reduction.
To find out the exact figures recorded in these three regions and how to interpret them, we invite you to participate in the conference to be held on Thursday, July 7, at 7:00 p.m., as part of Virtual Mining Thursday, which will be livestreamed to the social media accounts of the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers and PERUMIN 35th Mining Convention.
Rumbo a PERUMIN is a decentralized virtual event that promotes a multidisciplinary, technical, and democratic discussion about mining-related matters and about the opportunities the industry offers for the development of the regions of Peru.
This event is a prelude to PERUMIN, the most important mining convention in Latin America, which will be held in-person at its traditional site at the Cerro Juli Convention Center, in Arequipa, from September 26 to 30.
