The projects represent investment opportunities in energy, health, infrastructure and housing, according to Tacna Special Projects Unit chief, Celso Espinoza.

One of the projects that received a lot of attention is the Almirante Miguel Grau port project, which would require an investment of US$600 million. The project’s profile has already been approved by Peru’s National Port Authority, and it will be added to the National Port Development Plan in 2012.

Other outstanding projects included the Vilavilani central hydroelectric stations, which will be executed in Tacna’s high altitude areas with a S./200 million investment; and the Tacna-Arica railway which would link the southern Peruvian and northern Chilean cities.
A hospital for the III-1 Regional Level, a housing program and a geothermic-natural gas energy project were also presented.

The Tacna regional government also presented projects to boost the production of specific herb and agricultural produce emblematic of the region for export.
