BANGALORE: Representatives from the Government of Peru will meet with ministers from the state on issues related to forests and mining.

The South American country is looking to exchange experiences in dealing with illegal mining and deforestation among other issues. Javier Paulinich, Ambassador of Peru to India said their country and the state are dealing with ‘common problems.’

Ironically, Karnataka was unable to quell the large scale illegal mining which resulted in huge losses to the state exchequer. This resulted in the Supreme Court putting a ban on mining activity in the state. Peru is looking to invite ministers to Peru later in the year to understand and improve cooperation in these areas.

“We want our technical teams to meet and share experiences,” the Ambassador said. The Ambassador met with small scale industry leaders and industry bodies on Wednesday to discuss investment opportunities in Peru.

“We are signing an MoU with Government of Karnataka,” Paulinich told Express and added that they will first invite the ministers and officials from India and later bring their own delegation to exchange experiences to benefit mutually.
