On an economic level, the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) It has on its agenda to execute S/ 8,281 million in public investment in the Regional Governments for this new year.

In addition, Oscar Chavez, head of IEDEP, indicated that these sectors are finding it difficult to fully recover and require support from the State. “For more than a year these sectors, important generators of formal employment, have not achieved pre-pandemic growth. Today, with the new restrictions on capacity and curfew, they are prevented from operating at 100% of their capacity, especially those services related to tourism, which indirectly promotes informal employment”, referred the head of the IEDEP, Óscar Chávez.

On the other hand, the Executive has made available a new bonus of 210 soles for formal workers in the private sector who receive remuneration less than or equal to 2,000 soles. This economic subsidy would benefit around 3 million workers.
