Industry Applauds Peruvian Government’s Bold Move

The Peruvian government has made a groundbreaking move to simplify procedures in the mining sector. Miners have enthusiastically welcomed this initiative, emphasizing the crucial need for enhanced coordination among regulatory bodies such as the National Water Authority (ANA) and the National Environmental Certification Service for Sustainable Investments (SENACE).

The aim of the initiative is to streamline investors’ work in the responsible development of mining activities, improve efficiency, and cut bureaucratic red tape to prevent repetitive administrative procedures.
