Cesar Villanueva was named the prime minister of the Peruvian cabinet.
This Monday, President Martín Vizcarra named his first cabinet after his taking over 11 days ago, following the resignation of Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK).
A ceremony in Congress swore the members of the new cabinet. “The new finance minister is David Tuesta, who has worked for BBVA for the past decade and before that was a director of the Andean Development Corporation (CAF), a Latin American development bank.”, wrote Financial Times.
In the case of the mining portfolio, Francisco Ísmodes will take over. He has 20 years of experience in the industry, according to information from this news website. Also, Vizcarra named Néstor Popolizio, a career diplomat and former deputy minister as his new foreign minister.
“One of his first jobs will be to oversee next week’s Summit of the Americas, playing host to Donald Trump and leaders from across Latin America.”, you can read in Financial Times.
Finally, the new prime minister will be César Villanueva, a centrist politician who was key in forcing PPK’s resignation.
