Tacna it is the region that most executed its budget in the south of the country and the second at the national level. However, his progress it is only 35.9%. In the middle of the year, he only spent a third of his resources destined for works. Despite overwhelming needs, regional governments present a low budget execution of projects which must be reversed in less than six months remaining in management.
According to the Friendly Consultation web portal of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF), Cusco is among the ten regions with the best execution, but with 30.5%. The budget for works in the imperial region exceeds S / 839 million, the fourth most millionaire in the country.
Piura ranks first (S/973 million), followed by Arequipa (S/868 million) and Cajamarca (S/860 million).
The regional councilor Jorge Segura questioned the level of execution in Cusco and the little progress in emblematic projects such as the Vía Expresa and the Antonio Lorena hospital. “With that budget we should have advanced the emblematic projects and liquidated the small ones. Many works have been delivered, but they lack equipment. Let’s not forget that this year the transfers should already begin as recommended by the Comptroller’s Office, hopefully at least 80% will be achieved. In my case, I have a disappointment half a year after this administration ends, ”he said.
However, Arequipa is a more critical case. The Misti region is one of the seven regions of the country with the lowest spendingthey only executed the twenty %, according to Friendly Consultation. José Luis Hancco, president of the Regional Council emphasized taking into account the budget committed to the date that amounts to S/204 million 873 thousand.
Despite this, Hancco recognized the inefficiency and blamed the administration of Governor Elmer Cáceres. He said that Kimmerlee Gutiérrez inherited poorly prepared projects and flawed contracts that caused construction delays. “For example, the Socabaya treatment plant is a four million project, it is already at six million and it is not completed because modifications are being made to the project and unfortunately that is the characteristic of projects”, he said.
For Hancco, in what remains of the administration, there must be continuity of officials to guarantee the execution of works and budget before starting the transfers. “In July, a change was made in the Infrastructure Manager. This generates modifications in the sub-management and this will have an impact on works”, he questioned.
Ministries are also inefficient
Premier Aníbal Torres said from Ancash last Thursday that it is a crime not to execute at least 50% of the resources against the needs of the country. This in reference to the inefficiency in the National Executive. He announced that if by August, the ministries do not execute at least 70% of the resources, they will be removed from office. “We have arranged that as of August they have not executed at least 70% of the budget, they have to make their cargo available, because the country has to walk”,
