On arrival at the National Assembly, Government Minister, Jorge Ricardo Fabrega said it sees as viable the proposal submitted last night by the indigenous leader Asencio Palacio, who requested that the issues of mining and hydro electric project to be discussed separately. Palacio’s proposal was presented at the Commission of Trade and Economic Affairs of the National Assembly. According to Fabrega, that would be the best way to advance the discussion of Bill 415, which creates a special regime for the exploration and exploitation of mining and water resources within the region Ngäbe-Bugle.
CONTENT – The Indian leader’s proposal also includes the creation of an intergovernmental commission, where these issues will be discussed. However, Palacio said the implementation or otherwise of this proposal will depend on the agreements arrived upon this Thursday. Today there are plans to establish the methodology that will be used during the dialog to be conducted with the indigenous representatives. Inside the Blue Hall of the Assembly are the ministers Ricardo Quijano (Trade and Industry) and Jorge Ricardo Fabrega (Government).

Before the meeting in the Assembly, the Indians stayed together outside in the Park of the Legislature to establish the proposal they would submit. (Prensa)
