Peru plans to award next year infrastructure concessions including rail and road projects.
Concessions will include the Huancayo-Huancavelica railway line and the Callao logistics hub (ZAL), said Carlos Herrera, head of state investment promotion agency ProInversión.
The agency will seek to develop private-public partnerships (PPP) with investors from the US, the UK, China, India, South Korea and Australia, Herrera told state news agency Andina.
President Ollanta Humala’s government has awarded 27 concessions involving a total investment commitment of USD 17.9bn since taking office in July 2011, Herrera said. Peru holds elections in April 2016 and the new government is scheduled to take office on July 28 of that year.
