Peru's state-owned energy companies may play a greater role under the administration of newly-inaugurated President Ollanta Humala, Peruvian Minister of Energy and Mines Carlos Herrera said last month, according to Reuters. Herrera added that the idea would be for state companies, such as Petroperú and Electroperú, to have a greater role in state management and the ""general idea is for the capital to be private."" Should Peru's state-run companies be expanded or reformed? If so, in what way and how should the private sector be involved? Would Brazil and Colombia be good models to follow?
