The 5 local governments with the highest canon did not even execute 3% of their resources

March came, but the implementation of the aid was in the five local governments with the most transfers canon, overcanon and royalties It does not even reach the minimum of 3% of its resources. This is what the data from the data for the panel of the Action Council of the Competitiveness Council (CPC) shows.

The list of regions in question is from Meganton (Cusco), with approximately S/474.7 million adjusted from its institutional budget (PIM), coming from canonical transfers and royalties for investment activities and projects. With such resources, 2.5% at the end of February, according to the CPC platform, had only been implemented, with data from the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) at the end of February.

The said region, which is among those with the largest national resources, follows San Marcos and Chimbote, from Ancasino, with over S/448.3 million and almost S/302 million of resources, but with increases. approximately 0% (S/69, 706) and 1.9%, respectively. In addition, in San Marcos, if only disbursements for investment projects are considered, the figure drops to S/13,382.

The top 5 is made up of Pichari and Quimbiri, two districts of Cusco, the first of which has approximately S/233.3 million, the second has nearly S/216 million. However, both show only 1.5% and 2% progress, in both cases.


The state described together with the results of the public investment in February reported by the MEF. According to this data, the state of local governments accumulated 18% of the cases, in contrast with the smaller decisions of the regional governments, of -4%, and with an increase in the investment of the national government of 55%.

For the economist Iván Alonso, one way to avoid wasting resources is to have an “expired date”.

“This means that if the local governments do not use them until the end of the year, they can go back to the central government. In the same way that budget items are not used to expire at the end of the year. They could go back and be part of the contingency reserve,” he said.

Regarding the initiative of the MEF to introduce high-level public authorities under the Serviro scheme in local governments, the economist considered the method “could help”, but “the problem lies more with those who make political decisions, such as mayors, presidents and regional councils.


– Districts like Meganton and San Marcos have more opportunities to benefit than districts like Santiago de Surco, San Isidro or Miraflores.

– Of the budgets not made in 2022, the largest amount corresponds to local governments, with S/11,986 million that have not been used.
