“Training the technical teams of regional governments is a key part of this boost to public investment so that execution schedules are met, reactivate paralyzed works and make projects possible with efficient spending that benefit citizens,” wrote Pedro Francke Ballvé , Economy Minister, on Twitter.
In that line, the Institute of Economics and Business Development (IEDEP) of the Lima Chamber of Commerce indicated that the Government should focus on building strategies to promote the commerce and services sectors to achieve greater growth of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), because these items were seriously affected by the measures to face the pandemic due to the COVID-19.
In addition, Oscar Chavez, head of IEDEP, indicated that these sectors are finding it difficult to fully recover and require support from the State. “For more than a year these sectors, important generators of formal employment, have not achieved pre-pandemic growth. Today, with the new restrictions on capacity and curfew, they are prevented from operating at 100% of their capacity, especially those services related to tourism, which indirectly promotes informal employment”, referred the head of the IEDEP, Óscar Chávez.
On the other hand, the Executive has made available a new bonus of 210 soles for formal workers in the private sector who receive remuneration less than or equal to 2,000 soles. This economic subsidy would benefit around 3 million workers. In addition, EsSalud has already launched an official link (https://bono210.essalud.gob.pe/#/consulta.) so that citizens can check if they are beneficiaries of this financial support.
