Gamarra will lead the ‘march of the Mypes’ towards the Government Palace demanding safeguards and fight against mafias

A ‘march of the mypes’, led by Gamarra, is announced for this October 5. Among their demands are the application of safeguards, accessible credits for the sector and the fight against the mafias that continue to operate and allow informality.

“This march is not just for Gamarra, it is a march for Mypes. Guilds from Lima and the whole country are joining. Before the pandemic, the entire textile-clothing industry generated a million jobs; but the recovery is only at 50%, that is, 500,000 jobs still need to be recovered. The government of President Pedro Castillo has not carried out concrete measures to reactivate our sector”, the president of the Gamarra Peru Business Association told Trome, Susan Saldana.

He pointed out that the abandonment of the authorities is “obvious” for the recovery process of the entire production chain.

Safeguards on the importation of garments

“We have been demanding for a long time the immediate application of safeguards and the increase of tariffs to 30% on the import of garments from China and Bangladesh. Despite the rrecommendation of Indecopi, the national industry is not protected and those garments from Asia continue to invade the Peruvian marketSaldana remarked.

He also pointed out that there is an urgent ‘financial rescue’ for thousands of micro and small businesses, which are still bankrupt. “Just as they gave Reactiva to medium and large companies, mypes need loans with rates of no more than 5%, but not with non-usurious interests.”

Informal commerce

Susana Saldaña emphasized that another problem that persists and affects them is informal commerce.

“We Gamarrinos pay local rent, staff, taxes; but many others sell even covering the entrances to the emporium and the doors of shops and galleries, because There are mafias that profit from the streets. We have to put an end to that chaos and informality that not only affects sales in our businesses but also brings insecurity and crime,” he said.

In his demands there is also the immediate budget for the Myperu Purchases program, with which mypes can sell to the State. “There is not a single sun of budget that the government has allocated”, Saldana noted.

He specified that they will leave from Gamarra towards the Congress to deliver their petitions. “We will also request the censorship of ministers who work against mypes. Then we’ll go to government palace”.
