During the meeting, the nCC’s studies, its form of work and the recent mandate of President Sebastián Piñera to the committee were discussed, which requests to make a report on the construction sector, with the aim of identifying the barriers to productivity growth in this branch, together with the development of proposals to improve its performance.
Aspects related to the study by President Sebastián Piñera called the «Regulatory Review of Strategic Sectors» were also addressed, aimed at making proposals and recommendations to create an administrative simplification plan and regulatory in the processes and permits necessary for the development of investment projects in five key sectors (mining, energy, real estate, infrastructure and industry), maintaining standards for sustainable growth.
