And the big question? What means Garcia for mining?
Most Peruans I spoke too, were mentioning Garcias very bad “performance” during his last time as president. And this is, what Safe Haven means:
Garcia is a populist with a political outlook that steers a course between the extremes of raw capitalism and extreme nationalism. He is a moderate leftist that is not hostile to Washington. He has promised to (…) promote workers rights, leavy a windfall profit tax on mining companies, and to oppose the ratification of the free trade agreement with the United States until a full public debate has occurred. He has also claimed that he is the only candidate that is prepared to represent the poor without a takeover of private property.
And what´s your opinion? Would like to invite you to have a discussion!
