“Mining investments could reach $53 billion, with more than $28 billion in gold and copper projects,” Tafur said, speaking at the Ceo Summit of South American and Arab Countries, held in Lima on October 1-2.

“Investments in the Peruvian mining and energy field for 2011-2020 could surpass $73.2 billion — double the sums registered [in the decade] up to 2010, when Peru registered investments of up to $39.4 billion,” said Tafur.
