Peru is currently a very attractive economical market, and this is the perfect opportunity to attract sustainable investments that will help develop the economic, social and ethical aspects of the society.
These are the words of the President of the Ministerial Council, Mercedes Aráoz to El Peruano. She is currently participating in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Aráoz commented that Peru is welcoming new investments from all over the world but facing the problem of inequality in the areas where the investments will take place.
During her intervention in the forum, she recognized that the systemic corruption is debilitating governments in Latin America, and she asked to fight against this collectively. According to her, this will allow people to focus on the real problems in the society.
The President of the Ministerial Council also referred to the Odebrecht case. “It has infected all of Latin America”, she said to El Peruano. “They [Odebrecht] are debilitating our democracies because we only see political individuals involved”, she added.
