The governments of Peru and Mexico have embarked on a specific cooperation program designed to perform joint and concrete activities for the development of economic and tourism potential in both countries.

The document was signed by Peru’s Foreign Trade and Tourism Ministry (Mincetur) through its Export and Tourism Promotion Board (Promperu), and the Mexican Secretariat of Tourism (Sectur).

This deal will allow both units to promote the exchange of experiences and information based on their development projects of tourism, rural tourism and gastronomy.

“We will share our experience and good practices in rural tourism and gastronomy, while Mexico will provide its knowledge through the program Magic Towns and the development of thematic routes,” said Magali Silva, Peru’s Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister.

Likewise, two seminars will be held as part of the joint activities: one in Lima, Peru during the second half of 2014, and another in Mexico City during the first half of 2015.

In addition, the two nations will further strengthen cooperation within the framework of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, the Pacific Alliance, or any other international organization and forum they belong to.
