On Tuesday Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism Jose Luis Silva, accused certain foreign NGOs of “destabilizing” the country, Peru21 reported.
According to the daily, Silva said a group of non-governmental organizations were hurting the country by filing complains about poor labor practices.
"Recently we have seen that some NGOs and other companies, motivated by NGOs, have come to report that there are negative and anti-labor practices in the Peruvian export sector, when the opposite is true," Silva said.
The minister said the vast majority of Peruvian companies complied with international labor standards and certifications.
"Unfortunately sometimes we pay more attention when someone from abroad makes a complaint,” he said.
Silva also argued that some of the complains filed by NGOs had in fact been backed by foreign agricultural and textile firms.
According to the daily, Silva said it was important for Peru to continue to work consistently and organized, to ensure the country had strong formalized companies.
“We cannot kill the cows that give us milk,” he said.
