PROINVERSION PARTICIPATED IN THE OECD REPORT PRESENTATION
 


Lima, June 29, 2020.- The Private Investment Promotion Agency (PROINVERSIÓN) participated in the launching of the OECD report “Study of Public Policies on the Responsible Business Conduct: Peru”, organized by the OECD, the European Union, the ILO, the RBCLAC, the Ministry of Justice and PROINVERSIÓN, via an online platform.

According to the OECD, the Study of Policies Review on the Peruvian Responsible Business Conduct is a valuable tool to help the Government to adopt and promote coherently an approach of responsible business conduct through its policies and practices. Thus, it is an important input for the development process of the currently ongoing National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights in Peru.
It also represents a useful resource for decision-making under the current context of the crisis caused by the COVID-19 which has severe and lasting consequences in people’s lives, as well as in companies and economies.
The OECD pointed out that Peru is the first Latin American country with this OECD study and recommendations on Responsible Business Conduct policies.
“The adoption of a Responsible Business Conduct approach in government and business responses before this crisis has become even more important since it allows the creation of benefits in short- and long-term, such as a greater resilience and recovery capacity, a fairer and inclusive distribution of the recovery measure benefits, and a stronger and lasting contribution to the inclusive and sustainable development” affirms the OECD.
Cesar Martin Peñaranda, director of PROINVERSIÓN Investors Servicing, participated on the report presentation as panelist of the discussion “Opportunities and challenges to promote the RBC in Peru”. He expressed that in the current context, the Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) is no longer a voluntary aspect but a commitment to achieve the enterprises standards of the OECD countries and the international ones.
During the discussion, Peñaranda pointed out that the implementation of RBC policies of this OECD study is a significant challenge for the beginning of a new phase in PROINVERSIÓN activities as OECD National Contact Point. It should be noted that from 2009, the OECD National Contact Point (NCP) disseminates and implements the guidelines for enterprises and participates as an observer in the OECD Investment Committee to take notice and implement the OECD recommendations aiming at reinforcing the investments climate and promoting the sustainable development.

Trujillo, September 12, 2019.- ProInversión gathered representatives of different enterprises from La Libertad in Trujillo to promote the responsible business conduct and disseminate the Guidelines of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to reinforce the favorable climate of investments in the country.
The Director of ProInversión Investors Servicing, Cesar M. Peñaranda, pointed out that to preserve and reinforce the favorable environment for investments in Peru, it is required to consider that supplemental initiatives need to be developed, from both, the Government, and the corporate sector.

Within the framework of this joining, ProInversión was assigned as a National Contact Point for the OECD Guidelines since 2009, he added.
“Thus, as an OECD National Contact Point in Peru and as an Agency of Investment Promotion, we consider that the OECD Guidelines for Enterprises is a useful tool to promote a good business conduct and allow the increase of responsible investments in Peru”, he mentioned.
The officer of ProInversión also affirmed that the implementation of the OECD Guidelines for multinational enterprises, and within the chain of supplier enterprises, are a very useful tool in the responsible leading of businesses, considering that they may create a mutual trust basis between the enterprises and the locations where the activities are developed by enhancing the contribution of enterprises to the sustainable development.
Also, Mr. Peñaranda added that several enterprises are positioning the responsible conduct and sustainability as a business cross-cutting strategy, which creates a more attractive and competitive business environment.
Likewise, he declared the importance of the private investment role during the past years, as well as the significant business participation in the projects’ promotion processes of Public – Private Partnership (PPP) in charge of ProInversión; therefore, the institution will continue promoting the attraction of responsible investments that contribute the sustainable development.
