The document was signed approximately at 10:30 AM this Sunday, informed the President of the sub-central Sécure, Fernando Vargas, now the regulation must be endorsed by presidential decree. The Act establishes that there should be joint work and the commitments of the Ministry of the Presidency “to make the corresponding steps for approval”, pointed out in past hours, the President of the TIPNIS. The regulation is distributed in three titles, seven chapters and twelve articles, according to the detail offered by the leader of the indigenous people of the lowlands.

While these agreements are been made public and the enactment of presidential decree that will put into effect the rule, in Cochabamba there are warnings of a march demanding the road should cross the TIPNIS. [this unfortunate and belligerent instrument undermines the credibility of current central government]

The highest representative of the indigenous people of the TIPNIS said that the traditional use was respected.
