The Company bolsters economic development in the community by purchasing different goods and using different services offered in the area. In order for local companies to reach the quality and safety standards that we require in our operations, we develop a training program that helps the local companies improve their services, so that they can meet the needs of our operations. In 2016, just in the purchase of inputs such as timber, aggregates, and meals, we paid out over S/. 16 million to local businesses, while the amount injected into the local economy due to the hiring of services such as construction, maintenance, machinery rental, transport, and meals exceeded S/. 115 million.
