The National Society of Industries (SNI) presented the book “Perú Regiones al 2031″. A text with 585 actions that they intend to deliver to the candidates for the regional government so that they can include it in their government plans. With this, they seek to increase 3.2 million jobs throughout the country in the next 10 years, and also increase the contribution of the Industry to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 18%. The president of the SNI, Jesús Salazar Nishi, announced that they will go to each region to present the document.

Diagnosis

During his presentation, Salazar Nishi explained that the country can be divided into 4 large macro regions: south, north, center and east. In the South would be the regions of Apurímac, Cusco, Puno, Tacna, Moquegua and Arequipa. This is due to the geoeconomic coincidences they have. For example, the southern regions are characterized by the mining projects they develop, the manufacturing industry, construction and agriculture.

The specialist explained that among the 4 macroregions, the north stands out with the greatest contribution to GDP (19.3%). Then there is the south, with a contribution of 15.3% to the domestic product, then the center with 11.3% and far behind the east with 2.6%. Among the southern regions, Arequipa stands out with 35% of all the contribution of this macro-region. Then follows Cusco, Puno, Moquegua, Apurímac and Tacna.

Another big problem that the regions are experiencing is poverty. Salazar Nishi explains that this factor is inversely related to the level of formal employment in the regions. In other words, the more informal employment there is, the more monetary poverty is recorded. The most affected regions are Puno, Huancavelica and Cajamarca, with monetary poverty levels of more than 36%. These same have levels of informal work that exceeds 90%.

Another important point that the president of the SNI highlights is that micro and small businesses (MSMEs) represent the largest source of formal and informal work throughout the country; in total 10 million jobs. All this, indicates Salazar Nishi, despite the difficulties that this sector had during the pandemic and the obstacles they have in obtaining government contracts. Well, little by little, Chinese imports have taken away their market. “Today in the SNI we have only 2 companies in the footwear sector. The ones that had gone bankrupt”, he says.

Proposals to solve problems

The SNI prepared a text that contains all the proposals to be delivered to the candidates who are currently participating in the 2022 Regional and Municipal Elections process. The objective is for the candidates to include them in their government plans. The text sets out two national objectives by 2031: create 3.2 million jobs and increase the contribution of the industrial sector to GDP to 18%.

The text contains proposals for each southern macro-region.
