Piura is one of the regions that have received an important contribution from the mining and energy sector. This amount, if any, has been 422 million soles between January and October.
However, according to the economist Daniel Gutierrezthe Regional Government of Piura (GORE) has allocated less than half of this money, allocated by companies in the aforementioned areas between January and October 2022, despite the fact that there are still projects that various sectors are waiting for.
This money must be destined to the construction of schools and hospitals, to tourism, to expand the agricultural frontier, to improve the social and economic conditions of the communities. However, there is bad management. There are few Piura districts that receive a lot and many Piura districts that receive little,” he said.
Gutiérrez commented that the money not used by GORE returns to the state coffers and this, seeing the inability that governments have to manage it, reduces the budget, which affects the communities.
“By 2023 there will be less budget for regional and local governments. and that means less projects to improve Piura. That’s for sure,” she pointed out.
