“An advance of 40 million (soles) will be given that will be managed in the next six weeks in order to sign an addendum. It will help them immediately hire 200 people to work and begin with the petrimetric fence and to fulfill their commitments to the communities. “We cannot execute disbursements without progress”said the Vice Minister of Transportation, Ismael Sutta, during the decentralized session of the Transportation and Communications Commission of Congress, held this Tuesday from Chinchero.

Meanwhile, the minister Raul Perez-Reyes He pointed out that the budget law contemplates S/512 million to carry out the works at the Chinchero Airport and that the Government’s objective is to not stop it.

It is worth noting that The Natividad Consortium assured that they have financing and technical problems due to external factors, such as the advance of rain, and internal factors, such as unforeseen logistics expenses, which have generated losses of US$40 million.
