During this forum on the situation and trends in the Peruvian industrial sector, the general secretaries of the unions of the CGTP and the representatives of the SNI presented their views in a transparent environment, and opinions were received with respect and objectivity.

The workers proposed formulas for resolving conflicts and made suggestions for taking the first steps towards a social dialogue agenda. A good understanding between employers and workers is considered essential to safeguard the future of employment in the industry. At the close of the forum, Alejandro Caballero (ABA) and Gilber Ibañez (Fetrimap) offered SNI President Ricardo Márquez a platform of points, from which unions and employers in the industry can initiate a sectoral dialogue.
