Mypes in the textile and clothing sector assure that the Dina Boluarte regime “has its back” to the local industry and once again favored large importers. They are evaluating a national strike.
After learning that the Government of Dina Boluarte will not apply safeguards to garments imported from China, Gamarra and the Mype National Defense Front expressed their rejection of this measure that would prolong unfair competition against the Asian industry.
According to the mypes, the decision of the Multisectoral Commission of the Executive Branch violates article 22 of the Constitution by endangering one million jobs in the production chain of the textile and clothing sector, as well as at risk of bankrupting 100,000 mypes.
“We contribute with taxes, employment and generate economy, for which we declare ourselves in the fight and will initiate the corresponding actions in defense of our legitimate right to work in our country under equal conditions,” they detailed in a statement.
Along these lines, they affirmed that they will request access to the voting information of each minister that makes up the aforementioned working group —Alex Contreras (MEF), Luis Fernando Helguero (Mincetur) and Raúl Pérez Reyes (Produce)— to find out who complied with defending to the local industry and who were in favor of subordinate interests.
Apart from evaluating a protest at the national level, the mypes assured that the Government of Dina Boluarte, despite presenting itself as “a government for Peruvians”, has turned its back on the mypes and only benefits with this measure “a handful of large importers with interests foreign to the country”.
