President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski travels to Piura to oversee projects and visit the local university.
It’s time to rebuild. Those affected by El Niño floods earlier this year have been waiting for this moment.
President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski traveled yesterday to Peru’s northern region of Piura to oversee the current rebuilding projects and plans for others. It will mark the initiation of the administration’s Reconstruction with Changes plan.
Reconstruction with Changes not only seeks to replace damaged infrastructure; it aims to improve it. The comprehensive strategy also looks to re-plan affected communities in order to mitigate damages from future El Niño events.
President Kuczynski will also stop by the University of Piura to discuss the progress and schedule of projects, according to Andina. Many projects remain in the planning stages.
The news agency also reports that Prime Minister Fernando Zavala estimates that Reconstruction with Changes will create around 150,000 jobs once it hits full stride.
