The English journalist Andy Robinson published an article in the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that caused a stir in Peru. Robinson uses negligence and falsehoods to maintain, among other things, that mining is not profitable Cuzco He accuses the Fujimorista constitution and mining companies of targeting of hydrocarbons.
Peru21 to the two civilians I contacted attacking the government of Albert Fujimori. The first is economic Ismael Benavidesformer minister during the government of Fernando Belaunde and former delegate of Fredemo (coalition that named Vargas Llosa in 1990). The second is constitutional Merry Christmas, staunch opponent of the Fujimori government and former Congressman for Somos Perú (2001-2006).
the origin of the constitution
Robinson described the current situation as “fujimorista“. Faced with this opinion, both show rejection.”The 1993 letter was promoted by Fujimorismo, but the people from the left PPC participated in it as a constituent, it is not a constitution made only by Fujimorismo.“He pointed out I appreciate it. As for himself, You are welcome he rememberedAmong the many appointed were Henry Pease and other remaining men.He also said that The constitution was approved by a referendum where more than 52% of the voters voted in favor of implementing it. In addition, it should be noted that in the 2001 government in 2001 Alexander Toletanusthe signature of a dictator Albertus Fujimori Magna Carta was removed.

Correspondence and note states “mining and hydrocarbon concessions are protected by the Fujimori Constitution“. Amprimo and Benavides explained that the protection granted to the concessions is not for the sake of acceptance, but rather to provide legal stability to those seeking to invest significant amounts of money in Peru.”No country can prosper if it does not have a legally stable governmentAt first he said. On the other hand, Benavides points out that this is a protection mechanism “It involves a series of requirements for companies, and they can also lose the license if they don’t meet themMoreover, he thought that without these devices there would be no great money in our country.
As for himself, Carlos Casas, former Vice Minister of Economyshows that the government tax that it applies to mining companies does not favor the said act. “It is a sector that is quite regulated. The total share that each mining company takes is about 50% of the profits“, he said. Moreover, he considered that The mining tax rate in Peru is equal to or “slightly higher” than in other countries with mining activity..
Anthony Laub, industry expertRob also argued. “Mining has no special protection compared to other activities. That is not true. If they agree to the regulation of the promotion of private investment, they agree to the legal stability or the legal stability of the contract“, he pointed out.
An English journalist points out that Peru is “a country that bets everything on raw materialsThis right is rejected Houseswho shows “if so, mining would represent 50% of GDP, but it only represents between 12% and 13%.“.
In December 2022, the year INEI reported that the mining and hydrocarbons sector comprises 14.36% of GDP, while manufacturing is 16.52% and trade is 10.18%. The data shows that it is not accurate to say that our country is betting everything on mining. Also, an English journalist points out that “Cusco is rich in mineral and hydrocarbon resources, but it gains nothing from their exploitation“. This statement is incorrect. Between 2012 and 2022; Cusco received more than S/26,969 million for mining and gas, according to official data (Ingemmet). “Cusco is the department that receives the Holy Canon throughout the country. It is because they do not use it well and there is a lot of inefficiency and corruptionCasas said.
Several public companies
in Robinson’s notes. Josephus of Echaveformer Vice Minister of Environmental Management in the government of Ollanta Humala Article 62 of the Constitution is criticized because there is no mass of gas in the country of Bolivia, since it states that this article establishes that the state cannot enter where there are private companies.. In addition to the fact that the article got it wrong (it should have said 60) the statement is not true. Anthony Laub considered that the Constitution does not prevent the State from providing gas to all citizens and shows that, for example, in the case of Cusco the problem is low demand and poor infrastructure. The reason why public administration was concerned. “De Echave promotes the return to public companies, but all the losses and bad works have given explained.
