Alberto Fujimori is remembered as a grass-roots politician who waged a violent counterinsurgency campaign against Maoist rebels known as the Shinning Path and tamed crippling hyperinflation in the ’90s. He was also responsible for encouraging large-scale mining projects in conjunction with foreign conglomerates through mining-friendly legislation and a near-zero royalties policy. The mining and resource extraction sector now makes up for the bulk of the Peruvian economy.
