After knowing the closure of four mines in the city of Ayacucho, last Sunday the National Confederation of Private Business Institutions (CONFIEP) ruled through a statement on the announcement of plans to close mines communicated by the current premier Mirtha Vasquez.
In that sense, CONFIEP indicated that these announcements are “contradictory”, generate instability, violate the rule of law, discourage investment and cause job losses.
“These announcements violate the rule of law, as the Prime Minister attributes powers that do not correspond to her in accordance with the current legal system, as they are the exclusive competence of other competent public entities. Equally worrying is the actions of the Prime Minister that normalize and justify the violence “the statement read.
“We regret that the PCM is politically using a technical instrument that must be handled in accordance with the laws that apply to the industry”, is expressed in the text.
They also state that the plan to close the four mining operations located in this area of the Peruvian highlands would cause “54 thousand Peruvian families” to lose their jobs.
“Ads like the one formulated discourage private investment at a time when we most need to drive economic recovery”, they remarked.
