The Peruvian government, through the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur), presented the national strategy “Safe Tourism” which attempts to ensure a good travel experience and a safe stay for tourists visiting Peru.
“The ‘Safe Tourism’ strategy seeks to combat informality and insecurity in the Tourism sector. These problems can only be solved at the multisectoral level, through an articulated work between all sectors of the government, which will be promoted by the President of the Republic, Martín Vizcarra” said the head of the Mincetur, Edgar Vásquez.
He explained that "Safe Tourism" has three components: Security, Formalization and Strengthening. These will be applied gradually in the 25 regions of the country and will be aimed at consolidating the strategy at the national level with a view to the Bicentennial anniversary of Peru’s Independence.
Minister Vásquez said that this strategy also includes interventions articulated in terms of security, formalization and improvement of competitiveness in the provision of tourism services, strengthening the management of regional and local governments. Moreover, he added that the tourist will be informed about dealing with formal tourism services as a key factor to have a satisfying travel experience.
“We want tourists to feel safe in Peru and their travel experience focused on the wonders they met in our country. This will have a great positive impact on the competitiveness of Peru as a tourist destination. It is a great challenge that the public and private sector undertake in an articulated way”, he said.
This initiative seeks to reduce the percentage of informal companies in the tourism sector in order to meet the minimum standards necessary to provide a quality service and to improve prevention control, action and response to security problems in the sector.
Regarding security, the head of the Mincetur said that the operational capacity of the Tourism Police, the General Director of Captaincy and Coast Guard (DICAPI), the National Service of Protected Natural Areas (SERNANP) and local governments will be increased. To this effect, a disbursement of more than S/ 20 million in total will be made for the acquisition of trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, communication equipment, boats, etc.
“This investment will reinforce the Tourism Police with approximately 75 trucks, 55 motorcycles, 10 ATVs and some more communication equipment. Meanwhile, DICAPI will be equipped with eight boats and a checkpoint in Loreto and two boats and equipment for control and surveillance in Madre de Dios”, he set as an example.
He also commented that, through the “Safe Tourism” strategy, a High Level Tourism Security Executive Committee will be established while the Regional Tourism Protection Networks will be reactivated and strengthened.
In the medium term, at the level of formalization, Minister Vásquez said that the sectorial regulatory framework will be updated, tourism service providers will be trained and regional and local governments will be supported to strengthen their oversight capacity.
“Support will also be provided in the implementation of good management practices by regional governments; the development of joint operations with other entities in each region. Complaint processes will be facilitated for aggrieved tourists and legal mechanisms will be implemented for the application of effective sanctions at the level of regional and local governments”, he explained.
The “Safe Tourism” strategy is the result of an articulated work between the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism and the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion, Ministry of Transport and Communications, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Production, Ministry of Health and the Public Ministry. There is also participation by private sector associations which include lodging establishments, restaurants, tour guides and travel and tourism agencies.
A recent study on tourism formality revealed that there is 55% of tourist informality in the Cusco region while 75% in Arequipa.

Minister of Foreign Affairs; members of the Diplomatic Corps accredited in Peru; Secretary General; former Ministers, former Vice Ministers and former General Secretaries; General Directors; dear colleagues; dear family, my wife Susana, my children Jaime and Andrea; Ladies and Gentlemen, and all friend. I thank, in the first place, the very generous comments of my dear colleagues and friends Nestor and Hugo, and I am especially honored and deeply grateful for the confidence that the President of the republic and you, Minister of Foreign Affairs have placed in me by designating me as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs. It will be a privilege to work with a Chancellor of the professional solidity and experience of Ambassador Néstor Popolizio.
In particular, I would like to express my appreciation for the important work carried out by Ambassador Hugo de Zela as Deputy Minister and throughout his career, whose special personal qualities and professional abilities make him one of the most valuable diplomats in Torre Tagle. It is a real honor and a particular challenge to succeed a Vice minister of such a prestigious career.
I am aware of the dimensions of my new responsibilities and challenges, but I take this important task with the naturalness with which I have wanted to carry all acts in my life.
Before you, I express my full commitment to the objectives destined to promote and protect the interests of Peru abroad, always in compliance with the guidelines issued by the President of the Republic and led by the Chancellor.
In this regard, allow me to make some general remark referring to the work of the Ministry at the external level, which we will continue to support; as the Minister of Foreign affairs has mentioned, this is a team effort in which we all participate.
In the first place, it is important to continue working to consolidate our relationship with neighboring countries, which demand our prioritary attention, expanding our bilateral link and intensifying the security and development of border areas.
In addition to strengthening the links with our traditional partners in America and Europe, it is important to continue expanding our relationship with the Asia Pacific region and increase our presence in Central America and the Caribbean, using the granting of technical cooperation as a foreign policy instrument.
We will also seek to have a greater presence in Africa and the Middle East, in order to take advantage of the opportunities offered by these countries in commercial, economic and financial terms.
You know that a large part of my career has been spent in the economic area. I believe that this experience can contribute to clearly strengthen our relationship with countries and organizations, in which the economic component is predominant. The continuous participation in regional integration processes that will hold their respective summits in the months of May and July, is important to this effect.
Furthermore, Peru will hold the presidency of the Security Council of the United Nations next July, which will help us to play an instrumental role in dealing with matters of international peace and security.
In addition, Peru will continue to actively participate in the Organization of the American States and the different international organizations of which Peru is part, with the purpose of promoting and defending the permanent and conjunctural interests of our foreign policy.
In the same way, we will continue working in coordination with the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Congress of the Republic, as well as other national sectors, to accelerate the process of accession of Peru to the Organization for the Cooperation and Economic Development (OECD).
Without neglecting this constant diplomatic work in our external projection, we do not remain indifferent to situations such as the serious crisis that Venezuela suffers today, provoked exclusively by the illegitimate and dictatorial regime of Nicolás Maduro, which has caused the collapse of the country and generated the mass exodus of its population, with severe humanitarian, social and economic repercussions for Peru and the region. The Peruvian Foreign Ministry, as you know, has take a leading role through the Lima Group to achieve a return to democracy in Venezuela, a commitment that today, I must clearly.
I want to complete these remark, with on issue of greatest importance, which is to assure our migrant communities that we will continue to make every effort to improve every day the support and services provided to the millions of Peruvians who live abroad.
Internally, in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in this Ministry, my work will be guided by openness and inclusion, focusing on equal opportunities, non-discrimination, respecting individual and collective rights, fostering an environment free of abuse and harassment and maintaining a position of zero tolerance against acts of corruption.
In a very special way, with deep conviction, I will support with determination and enthusiasm effort in gender issues because all the women of this ministry deserve to have uphold their rights, feel visible and receive the fair and differentiated treatment necessary for their full work development, and thus overcome the limitations that machismo has historically and culturally imposed on them.
Although there have been advances in these policies, there is a long way to go in the field of implementation and, above all, assimilation by society. I would like to mention, as the Chancellor also pointed out, the process of modernization of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which I will continue to promote, based on the principles that have allowed us to forge the international prestige that we enjoy, and rescuing those traditions that are still valid. This process should also include the incorporation of the most modern technological and management tools, which equip the Foreign Ministry and the Missions abroad and the Decentralized Offices with the necessary capacity to face future challenges,
Our efficiency and productivity should not rest on individual capacities, but on predictable and structured public management processes.
Be assured that, working as a team with the Chancellor and the Secretary General, we will try to consolidate a Ministry that offers its personnel a good working environment, in which meritocracy, efficiency and quality of life are privileged.
That is why I invoke the Diplomatic Service and the administrative, contracted and service personnel, who are part of this great family that is Torre Tagle, to work together in solidarity and cohesion.
I am aware that, beyond my desire to improve our institution, I will not be able to achieve it if I do not count on the contributions and the committed collaboration of all of you, especially the younger generations.
Finally, in my capacity as Head of the Diplomatic Service of the Republic, I would like to say to my colleagues of all categories that we should always be aware of the important role we play in the continued construction of our country and feel the pride of belonging to an institution. who works to contribute to the greatness of the country and the welfare of its people. I also want to tell my colleagues that they have my full support to address their concerns and also their needs, but at the same time that they have the security that I will require of you authenticity, commitment, loyalty and a lot of work.
I end these brief words reiterating my firm will to serve the country and close and loyal collaboration with the Foreign Minister to achieve the foreign policy objectives and the strengthening of the Ministry and the Diplomatic Service of Peru.
